In another way, new economic factors have altered the traditional picture of the household economy. The regular market for grain, and the possibility of earning reasonable wages have combined to give the wealthiest village households incomes in good years well beyond normal expenses. In 1952, much of this was going into housing and into more splendid weddings. By 1955, it was said in Sakaltutan that villagers had opened bank accounts. Two young migrants had houses of unprecedented luxury for the village, and one of them had invested in a lorry. But the problem remained unsolved. If in a modern economic and political context a villager achieves wealth beyond his immediate needs, what can he do with it? Village society and the village heritage of knowledge and experience offer no solution.
