!Process Of Intermediation In Haitian Marketing

This paper is -an:.attemnpt to
concretely wlt the aetivi-
s of distributing Intermodiar-
in. the Haitian internal mar-
fing system. As such, it con-
in large part of descrip-
I of transactions undertaken

y have been given to the au-
r, or as he has witnessed
From these cases and
e t is, possible to abstract
ew general principles which

avior of such intermediaries;
t the formulations to be pre-
nted here are tentative. They
-e offered in the hope that they
will raise questions and critic-
Isms which can be used in shar-
pe-ning further field work on. the
same sorts of problems.)
As an economic institution, an
internal market system fits with.
in the familiar triad of produc-
tion, distribution, and consump-
tion. Though it has wide and
sometimes unexpected ramifica-

1 ons, it is primarily a distribut-
ihe institution, a means for get-
ng what is produced to the con.
Smer. Of course producers are
consumers also:,. the. internal
market is a mechanism for dis-
tributing via exchange. Though
such exchange occurs through
barter in some internal market
systems, it does so only very
rarely on the Caribbean islands.
In Haiti, the medium of exchan-
ge is standard, and takes the
form of a national currency.
Even the words for "truck" and

'barter" are rarely employed in
these countries. In Haiti, the
French word "troquer" is hard-
ly known in the countryside,
while the common Creole word
for "barter" or "swap". bou-
kante, is seldom used, and is
never used to characterize a
market transaction.
But even where money is ubi-
juitous and necessary for exch-
ange. exchanges could occur
without a marketplace: and in
many economies, they do. Hence
the particular function 'of the

market system is worth reflec-
tion. Obviously marketplaces are
.here buyers and sellers meet.
The products brought to the mar-
et or to its environs are ass-
embled from a wide variety of
physical and occupational sett-
ings. A total list of the products
) be found in even a medium-
sized Haitian market would pro-
'.e surprisingly impressive. Since
thesee products arc assembled in
one place, the marketplace '..cpl-

:,m for eliminating the obstacles

The People's Rising
17th June
As a protest against the forth-

strikers was joined in a short

workers. In front of the "House
f the Ministries", the seat of

,eipzlger Strasse, to which the
demonstrators had marched, the
strike demonstration developed
,into a rising against the regime.
The workers openly demanded
the resignation of the govern-
ient, free elections and reumi-
'ication. The Communist leaders
ind their executive organs were
-onfused and unsure of them-
-lves. The 16th June ended on
Ne keynote "general strike".
On the morning of 17th June
East Berlin was like a rebel

measurably bigger than the day
before, with revolutionary slog-

iNDAY JUNE 17, 1962






On July 2nd some 3,084 students will present them-
selves at the various examination centers in the Capital
and sit for their Baccalaureat 1st and 2nd part.
In last minute preparation for the exams' the public
squares and street corners that offer cool e v e n i n g
breeze and electric light are dotted with students swat-
ting for the crucial degree 'that, for many, holds the
key of their future.
The sacrifices of students, especially their parents in
the ranks of our peasantry, poor and middle-class are
It has been calculated that most of the students who
fill our University today are from families with meager
means, and n-any date this nationwide thirst for know-
ledge to the period when Minister of Education Du-
miarsais Estime, nearly two decades ago, multiplied the
lycees and gave impetus to education in the ranks of
the less privileged citizens.

That the sacrifices of poorer Haitian parents .are
legendary is illustrated by the fact that a "marchande
ftaille" in the Capital has a son attending post gra-
duate school in France today while another parent who
ie6rned as little as twenty-five dollars a month gave an
education to seven children, three obtained university
agrees and one distinguishing himself at the Sorbonne.
The search for knowledge; knowledge that will per-
kmit them to face the future with optimism is becoming
every day more pressing at this time when scientific
and economic evohltion of the people demands the max-
Imum of knowledge.

The middle class, for sometime, has awaken to this
state of affairs. A new wind seems to blow on the minds
of the fathers in this class. Whether they are office boys,
artisans or minor commercial employees, they have a
unique ideal, a single motto: "marcher avec thi seul
pantalon" (go with only one pair of pants), so that the
bread of instruction be available to their "baton de
vieillesse" (old age stick), their children.
The learning of modern young women nolonger halts
at "Certificat d'Etudes Primaires" and sewing as it did
our their grandmothers' time. As men, they take the
road of science. They are a part of all our universities:
medical school, Dental school, Engineering school, Tea-
chers' college, National school of International Higher
Studies, etc...
However, besides the -enthusiasm of this youth, thirs-
for knowledge, besides the stubborn determination of
these brave fathers who give their body and soul for
the education of their children, a crucial question may
ei asked: Once they get their degree, what's going to
come of these bacheliers? They will probably choose
to go to University. Very well. But is our university
able to satisfy all the applicants?
Of the'8,084 who will go to the Baccalaureat only 500
of those who pass the second part may be admitted to
Ue University.
:i So the drama today is that even with a Baccalau-
t degree a student's chances for a University edu-
on are dim, and he may face' the prospect of search-
hopelessly for a job serving in a store or joining
multitude of apprentice mechanics.
'ew have the financial possibilities to attend Univer-
e abroad.

must be enlarged to give the opportunity of higher
learning to more of her sons and daughters point to the
terrific expense entailed in the enlargement work and
adding to the faculty.
As important as enlargement of the University they
also note is the provision that will keep the graduates
in the country at the service of their community and
not drain them off abroad because of lack of opportu-
nity at home. Our technicians and trained men have
.become an export crop to the Congo, Canada, U.S. and
Latin American countries because the community can-
not support them.


Academically, few could dare to challenge the excel-
lence of the Haitian school system, and even fewer
would demand its overhaul, except, perhaps its exten-
tion to serve the entire community.
But there are other things in life that boys and girls
should know, besides, the' fourth root of "y" or the
Hegelian dialectic. And sometimes the more practical,
if less academic, knowledge is that which comes in
most useful.
This has been dramatically illustrated time and again
here. Not so many years ago a group of teen-age child-
ren Stood helpless as a college died after being res-
cued from drowning because' they did not know what
to do to save her life.
When the boy was pulled ashore still alive and there
is a possibility that prompt action by someone versed
in First A.:,could have saved her life, but there was
no-one theke who. knew how to render artificial respira-
tion. I.
In most other countries of the world, First Aid cour-
ses are included in the school curriculum, together with
other subjects such as domestic-science, sewing or far-
It is ironic that the dead girl was the only member
of the party whi~thwent to the sea that day who could
have saved a drowning person. She was a girl-Guide
and, according to her former schoolmates, she was de-
voted and skillful.
First Aid, one of the first courses given to Guides
and Soouters, was naturally one of the young girl's
strong points.

olace on a market day and, accompanying this, the remarkable
r.imbers of independent intermediaries, each self employed, who
conduct business operations. This petty scale of operations has a
perVasive quality in Haitiaxi economic life. No1 only distribution',.
but production and consumption as well, take place in "little bites."
Distribution fits with the producing and consuming patterns of the
economy; the internal market system gears into small-scale pro-
duction, dispersed demand, low labor costs,' and irregular and
modest per capital and per. family income and consumption. The
web. of intermediaries who power the distributive system, as- it
were, are of great interest for the way they seemi fo appreciate
the basic economic characteristics of Haitian society, and. -because
of their capacity to find niches Wvithin the distributive process
which they can fill. It is to this matter of finding and filling dis-
tributive--niches that I wish to turn now..

Some of those who come to market are at any one time buyers
only; they' have cash. with which to buy for immediate consump-
tion, and nothing to sell,-Others are sellers only; they need nothing
for ithe moment, but they are abte to acquire cash or capital by
selling .what they. have. But between these two categories are
those who do not produce (or at least are not primarily producers) -
-but who stand betweeff buyer and seller, between producer and
consumer. .These intermediaiies, as I have said elsewhere, are no
homogeneous group by any means; the characteristics' they share
are in their economic function, broadly conceived. In practice,
,there is considerable economic activity in and around the market
in which they have .no pat. Two significant (and significantly'
different) examples' will demonstrate this. A Haitian peasant wife *
-who never works as an intermediary comes to market to .-buy
several tomatoes or dn'ons, and a piece of yam or a few sweet
potatoes or;green bananas. She may .make no othek single .pur-
chase for cash duhigng.'the period of .a week or more; her total
expenses in cash, for that period, may be less than U.S. twenty
cents. At the rhoment- she .does not need (or cannot afford) to bbuy
cooking utensils; or cloth or shoes; or salt cool or flour. Her hus-
'band does. n6t need a machete or hoe blade; her basket is in good
'repair; .there- is a-crop, in. To buy what she needs, she carries.sev-:
eral pineapples, or a small quantity of avocadoes, or a basket of
mangoes to-market.. She sells them during the course of the day.
and with the mnioney, she buys. what she needs and returns home.
If she has sold her -stock to another consumer,- no intermediary
has entered into -the transaction. If she buys from another producer,
no intermediary has -'entered into that 'transaction, either.: This
would illustrate transactions .without intermediafles. However, it
nuist be added immediately that such a pair-fl ,transactions would
be exceedingly -rare.' If .this woman sells to one who is not a
consumer-to-be, theri an intermediary enters into the process; the
same is- true if she buys from someone who is not-a producer.
Moreover, if she buys anything which has come a Iong distance
which is not presently in' season in her home region, "which is per-
ishable or fragile, or which has been processed, the likelihood, of
her buying it from intermediary rather than producer is very.:much

, One. question that-must be answered in this little.dramai
r do with those women squeezed out' of their niche by 6 the' de
r of the truckers to sell in -one-tin quantities. The truckers ::,
of losing too many sales in a weak market, engrss a, large'
of the .retail trade when they' reduce .the. scale of the sai~
Share willing to make. Since they control, access to supply it""
- of their greater buying capacity and the distances they :-caP
economically, carrying a bulk product having low unit value'
are in a position to do this when they feel that the sittuai:o'0
quires it. The intermediaries between them and the ultimate"
s summer, have no protection except a limited 'form of arbia
When they :are cut out of the chain of. intermediation by thosS-e&
stand above them in the sequence, they'must find some 6othle
Sin the web of middleman activity, at least temporarily. -And-.f
this may occur with relative frequency, and they know lit -
cannot afford not to have alternatives'. Intermediaries this: far t
. on the ,ladder in terms of .capital resources must, depend' to.(atf
extent on the availability of alternatives. What they 'appear
to do is move swiftly into other areas of small-scale hard:'.: -
trade --for instance, soap,. matches, and kerosene- in. ho
still'making a profit, however small. '.
The four principles or precepts enumerated so far --it liiigSht
more appropriate to dub them nationss" or ".'hunches" -L e.*
sone basis for considering'several different Levels of intermned~"i
S.operation, and a variety of arrdngementq ihtermediairies may ,
in- carrying on, their. activities. As one moves up .the scale, 1b3i.
tal accumulation, the picture is perhaps clearer, -'the alternatit
more ,precise, aid the risks are greater. The woman with .lr'
sumrs of capital must turn away.from quch alternative actidtt
a cultivation Ai f order fully to employ the .earn ing.power if I,
capital., The trader does not produce, primarily; she "-grows mo
ey," by skilful and 'strategic investment. This ,does not miean
however, that the .number. of intermediaries vWho 'live 'solely ~
trade is large; most women who engage exclusively in- traddiu$
in-the capital, and Atny df .them are in practice stationary.-reti.
ers, or depot.owners, not' itinerant-resellers. In'.the co.untrysid l
is &are that one encounters a 'woman who owns'or rents noi
or' whose .husband is not a cultivator. But the capital ai i
turns to trading is not readily withdrawn from agrieulture:'.Ci ..
trariwise, money invested in agriculture is not easily releasebdj
trading actimit. The difficulties attendant uponsuch transfersi

But l" rust lib noted that, in the .case of': aiti, 'they h'ave-t.i
as well with a significant'feature of the division of labor, by

women in trade, 'though the family the family budget..is io i
ally a commonn one. This division, Wolf has suggested, 'Zd.
sidetable utility, since it involves husband and' wife in diffi
risk structures. Oi the other hand, however, it leads to a 'di.il
of capital resources such that they cannot always or easily bit1
transferred from one activity to another. As the capital invested'
in trade 'mounts, the entrepreneur apparently finds growing .diff-.
culty in keeping the avenues of transfer open. While this mayliI2
-kept in mind, it can, also be demonstrated. that there' are, in de
ways to intermesh distributive and productive-activities, and .thl
maneuvers are of great.interet;. ..-.
Intermediaries above the penny 'level launch their econgnii&A!'
activities at differing vantage points. My information on this 1s
far from complete, but a few examples, suggesting different levelsl'-P
may be useful. Dealers in certain kinds of bricabrac can maintain.'.
operations with a capital ranging from two to twenty dollars. '
stock of such retailers will usually include soap, matches, kerQ -'-
sene, cooking oil, cigarettes, star anise, cinnamon, Jamaican.. i-VIt
mento, sulfur, shallots, garlic, blueing, asefoetida, bicarbonate o"'4
soda, wheat flour, students' notebooks, needles and thread, nais,
resin, tailors' wax, buttons, cloves, dried thyme, candles, cate-
chisms, or some assortment of these items. Most such stock 'isf- '
relatively imperishable. Turnover is low, and profit margins a 1&-.
apparently not high. Taxes are paid by sellers of such goods, each
market day. A woman wants to have a wide variety of such -little. '
items in order to satisfy all comers, but she also must avoid tying .?
up a large portion of her capital in those things having the slowest
rate of turnover. Those women who choose not to sell these kinds
of items -called kinkay in Creole- argue that the seller eats up
her capital while she waits for sales. The kinkay sellers themselves
always aim at enlarging their operations in various ways, if they
can ever accumulate enough free capital. They begin thinking
about the possibilities as their savings mount-for saved money
that is not working is lost money. This view differs rather drama-
tically, I believe, from the way the Haitian peasant views his
land- unused land is not wasted land, nor is it thought of as
dissolving capital, so far as I have been able to tell. But unused
money consumes itself-that is, money that is not earning is not
working, and if things turn worse, one may not only not be mak-."
ing profit, but may be reduced to consuming capital ... .

.not succeeded in removing the
causes of the rebellion. The de-
mands of the rebels were not
fulfilled, living conditions were
not improved.
Open opposition to dictatorial
conditions of work-the arbitra-
*y fixing of working norms-was
'he beginning of the revolt. The
similarity of the demands in all
he centres. of the revolt was
astonishing. It went as far as
slogans with the same text on
e banners, although the insur-
-nts had no contact with one
another, as there was no central
leadership. This showed that the
nsurrection developed on the
*road basis of the same basic
"onviction namely against the
Communist regime.
The demands of 17th June are
still unfulfilled. They still form
the basis of the externally invi-
sible resistance directed against
he Communist 'rulers. It can
'ven be said that the contradic-
ion between the demands of the
people and the political facts
has become more glaring.
Thus the Labour Law Book in-
troduced in the meantime-it re-
rlates the general conditions of
vork and provides among other
'tings for compulsory direction
f labour to employment outside
the place of residence and
above all the Communist wall of
13th August 1961 against what
remained of freedom of move-
nent in Berlin and Germany
ire in irreconcilable contradic-
ion to the desires of the people
if Central Germany. The urge
o remove the Communist reg-
me in Germany is certainly no
'ess strong than in June 1953, but
it present there is no hope of
that. Workers' fists are power-
ass against Soviet tanks.
