AbstractThis document describes the role of Konso markets in integrating different spheres of the economy. While predominantly cereal farmers, the Konso pursue a range of subsidiary livelihood strategies including hunting, gathering, and craft production. The Konso economy includes several local and regional markets through which products and services are exchanged. These markets reinforced community solidarity through tighter collective control over land and labor while leaving the value of consumer products up to individual buyers and sellers.
