Abstract

This paper is about the pressures of market forces and ethnic competition, and the tensions which arise as interactions between the two are played out in a fragile physical, social and institutional environment. We aim to illustrate in the paper how, superficially, economic conditions in the vegetable producing areas of Nigeria's Jos Plateau have improved substantially over the decade 1991-2001.
