Models of Human Sociality

I really need to get some sleep (up at 4:40 tomorrow for early
flight), but at some point I need to read this - at first glance it
looks like a serious summary of the different approaches people use in
constructing relationships between each other.

Relationship between EM and MP?

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Wed, 13 Jan 2010 09:40:08 -0300

(If you've not read the above, it argues that there are four basic
relationships:
  CP - communal
  AR - hierarchical
  EM - equality matching
  MP - market)

It seems to me that EM and MP are closely linked.  Perhaps to the
point where it's better to consider them as a single relationship.

EM stands for "equality matching" and examples given in the text
include taking turns cooking dinner, tit-fot-tat retribution, etc.  MP
stands for "market pricing" and examples include shopping and sharing
costs according to consumption.

The connection between MP and EM, then, is that MP is simply a more
sophisticated manner of reaching equality (the idea that money is
derived from barter, for example).

This is supported by the analysis of these modes in other species,
where the presence of EM is debatable, and MP not found.
