Nowak and Laird's Applying Anthropology 6.2 box,
in Cultural Anthropology, proposes the following
question The familiar saying never do business
with family advises against the practices used
in many of the chiefdom societies discussed in
this chapter. This old saying implies that doing
business with family will create conflict,
whereas chiefdom societies welcome and encourage
such close-knit economic exchanges as a way of
preventing conflict. In fact, in an interesting
article on family businesses, Bertrand and Schoar
comment on how cultures based on strong family
ties can have a negative impact on economic
development. The reasoning is that the more we
are taught to count on our kinship and family
ties, the less
2
likely we are to trust those outside our family
networks, which greatly prohibits the development
of larger economic institutions...Consider both
examples and create an argument for or against
mixing business with family. When responding to
this question, be sure to engage in
cross-cultural comparison, taking into
consideration variation in subsistence systems,
descent systems, mobility, and any other factors
you consider pertinent. Draw examples from the
ethnographic record, your own experience, and the
experience of others with whom you are familiar.
Your initial response should be at least 150
words in length. Please support your claims with
examples from the text, recommended material,
and/or scholarly articles. Respond to at least
two of your classmates posts by Day 7. For more
