Abstract:The pervasive individual urge for surplus accumulation in a political-economic context dominated by commercial capitalism has defied all attempts by the Nigerian State at a more equitable distribution of basic commodities. The actual pattern of distribution reflects the underlying structural relations of production and exchange, which State measures, such as the institution of government agencies as monopoly distributors, rationing, and the setting up of essential commodity committees, have failed to redress. In addition, the emphasis is almost entirely on the urban areas and the rural countryside is left to stagnate and decay. Notes, ref.
