Título: Poverty in employment: a political economy of petty commodity production in Dakar, Senegal
Autor: Gerry, Chris
Orientador: Allen, V. L.
Data: Mar-1979
Resumo: This study of petty commodity production in Senegal's capital city, Dakar, begins with a critique of conventional social scientific analyses of the “non-industrially-employed” segments of the labour-force in underdeveloped capitalist economies. In doing so, it also examines the contributions already made by radical theorists in this field, and offers an initial framework of problematics and concepts on which a more detailed materialist analysis might be based. Following this introduction, the concept of petty commodity production is analysed in some detail, with reference to both the classical and contemporary Marxist literature. Subsequently, the historical evolution and dynamic of petty commodity production is traced in general terms for Europe, and then with specific reference to the Senegambian region of West Africa. The composition and organisation of the labour-force in petty commodity production is then closely examined on the basis of data collected in a questionnaire survey of 285 workshop-based small producers. The labour-force and the labour process are then disaggregated in order to identify the various forms and degrees of proletarianisation experienced by petty producers and their labourers. Finally, the conventional policies for the “promotion” of small scale industry and services in under-developed capitalist countries are critically evaluated in both their national and international contexts.
