Answer each questions in complete sentences on a separate sheet of paper/papers. ! 1. Most traditional subsistence systems have been influenced by culture contact, conquest and colonialism, and more recently the "global market economy."

Is foraging a viable subsistence strategy in a large-scale industrial society? ! ! ! ! 3. Saturday Farmer's Markets are an increasing presence in many towns and cities in the U. S. What would you need to know to explore this phenomenon? Are Farmer's Markets a case of "resistance to capitalism"?
