In highlandNew Guinea, even though women feed and raise the pigs, men will give the pigs away, often without the women’s consent, thus causing internal tensions (Mojeska, 1982). There also women have started their own banking system to keep their production independent of their husbands (Sexton, 1982). Although some aspects of production are not pooled, others are, including jointly owned animals received at marriage. These examples suggest that we must think through how much we can use the idea of pooling produce for each particular cultural situation and at what level we should envision such pooling.

The specialized agricultural enclaves of the Inka and Sassanian empires may be cited here (Murra, 1980; La Lone and La Lone, 1987; La Lone, 1994; Wenke, 1987). Collectively, the differing imperial goals for state expansion, the varied natures of the subject societies, and the costs and benefits of differing approaches would have contributed to varying policies of rule across the same empire. For these reasons, among others, we feel that it is necessary to explore both the systematic and particular features of imperial-provincial relations in order to explain the effects of imperial conquest on the domestic economy of any given region.
