Hi Keith. It is great to connect with you again. I have not been in touch with Eric for a very long time. How about you?

Hi Keith,

I was wondering if it would be possible to study a religious institution as an economic institution? As religious institutions like seminaries, madrasas  are economically dependent on the neoliberal state, the negotiations of these institutions with the state on economic matters makes it a site worth exploring. Don't you think so? 

I thought I would ask this question because I sensed that the current practices of ethnography from an economic anthropologist's perspective seem to only concentrate on economic institutions like industries, financial institutions etc. but not religious institutions (I might be wrong, I have been exposed to economic anthropology this semester only). If that is so, why?

Incorporating the perspective of Human Economy was so much help to understand the challenges that one undergoes in financial inclusion, where economic inclusion of the individual plays a vital role. It is about who is being inclusive in the economy, thus working on human capital becomes essential for the growth of economy.

Could you be specific of which line are you referring to ?

Hi Keith, i am so glad could connect to OAC, your writing on Human Economy really helped me for my project on financial inclusion. Happy to have connected to this world of anthropos :)

Thank you Keith for such a quick response to my complaint of fraud.

I notice by going through your posts that you are someone who is very active in this field of inquiry, whereas I am someone inquisitive- i do not comprehend much of anthropology, so by snooping around I hope to get a whiff of what is happening.

I am a (self taught) social psychologist who is trained to be a musician fundamentally, and i work in mental health- as a researcher, psychologist, as well as entrepreneur.

Am trying to see in what way the world can be more healthy and evolve with the contribution of music (as a part of the larger context of education)- what could be the evolutionary potential of the arts for the human race. Not that these things are not known but in the times that we live in, everythign is so rigged by the money enterprise that though everything seems closer by, in fact everything is mediated by money- sadly!

But that hopefully is my life work- and that happens in myriad ways, in many dimensions. So somehow i landed here and hope to gain -knowledge, friends, insights and more (who knows what- collaborations? )

I did my PhD research on a market very similar to the one you describe in your article about Ghana informal market. I used your study as a reference and to establish a comparison between them two. I have attached a letter with photos of this northeastern Brazilian market for your better comprehension.

That article was never translated into Portuguese. Therefore, I would ask you if you would give me your permission to publish my translation of your article. My study is part of a group research at the Federal University placed in the interior of Northeast of Brazil: www.gptrabalhoufcg and most members do not read in English. Thus, I thought translating your article to them would be a path towards a better understanding of our object of study.

Best regards

Thank you so much Keith. I look forward to networking and learning here. I am a 61 year old History major with a minor in Anthropology. My fall classes begin Monday. I agree with your discernment of the coming role of Anthropology. Now to get this to our public schools...His In Service

Yes, I know. And I find realy interesting your speech for the Conference organized by Marzia Grassi in 2007. I'll keep in touch.

Hallo Keith, its a pleasure to join this comunity, its a real pleasure to get your welcome note. I've just put some more info in my profile, now I'm going to surf here to get to know more about OAC. I'm investigating informal economy in Cape Verde in general, informal workers organizations in particular, but I'm especially interested in the people who chose to live from art, from creation..

Hi Keith, I am in fact in Paris, but I understand you are now in S. Africa! We now have a project with Federico Neiburg on "Modes of government and ordinary economic practices", which is thrilling. I am off to Brazil, where we'll discuss this. Would love to have a beer when you're around.

Hi Keith. As you're aware I've damn all to add to this forum! If it's OK I'd just like to read.

Hope all is well with you and love to Sophie and Constance
