Hull, Elizabeth and James, Deborah (2012) Introduction: popular economies in South Africa. Africa: the journal of the International African Institute, 82 (01). pp. 1-19. ISSN 0001-9720
African economies have long been a matter of concern to anthropologists, not least in the pages of Africa. These economies are situated, somewhat contradictorily, between global settings of financialized capitalism on the one hand and impoverished local arenas where cash-based economic transfers predominate on the other. The more such economies appear to be tied to wider global arenas and operations that place them beyond the reach of ordinary people, the more necessary it is to explore the logics and decisions that tie them inexorably to specific everyday settings.
