Abstract:This paper outlines the social functions and the physical, authority, and commercial structure of Liberian market places as of 1970. In an earlier paper ('Entrepreneurship in Liberia', Liberian Stud., J., 5 (1972/74), p. 113-147) the author briefly reviewed the question of entre-preneurship'in Liberia, with special reference to the traders in market places. The present paper expands that discussion to encompass the physical and social context within which the traders in market places conducted business: Introduction - Economic and non-economic functions - Physical structure - Authority structure - Market fees - Market authorities - The Liberian Market Association - Commercial structure - Conclusion.
