Anthropology

What is “cultural” about the ways societies organize their economic systems? Think about the dominant economic system in the U.S. (production of goods and services, technology, allocation of resources, division of labor). What are some of the culturally constructed ideas reflected in this system? What are some alternative ideas and systems?
