Halperin suggests that sustaining a vital and personal ethic of exchange among community members effectively rewrites the logic of impersonal, commodified exchange at a time when survival itself is at stake. “Doing what it takes” is code for “making choices that go outside normal economic relations,” giving individuals the implicit moral authority to pursue creative economic acts in order to help save the group. At the same time, however, these economic activities that benefit the community rather than the self do not lie entirely outside the realm of the market economy; to some degree, in fact, they depend on it.
