Thus the population no longer relies upon social organization in the
form of family, friends, neighbors, community, elders, children, but with
few exceptions must go to market and only to market, not only for food,
clothing, and shelter, but also for recreation, amusement, security, for
the care of the young, the old, the sick, the handicapped. In time
not only the material and service needs but even the emotional patterns
of life are channeled through the market (191).
