Increasingly, as people faced conflicts around changes underway in rural areas, the city became a place of refuge, a source for tipping the scales in favor of one party or another, and a place for the short-term accumulation of resources. For urban residents, rural areas became a place to send family members in times of difficulty, to hide assets, to feed urban households, or to garner support or inputs for various urban projects (Englund 2002). Practices of making something out of the city other than what was expected by a fuller incorporation in capitalist production had to “search” for different organizational forms and auspices under which to operate.
