The prehistoric and historic origin and changes in the relationship between highly differentiated ecosystems and the emergence of intra and interregional exchange, trade, and marketing is explored in the Andes with particular reference to Bolivia. Distinct economic exchange systems existed side by side affected by complex patterns including widespread population changes, involving migration and urbanization, land tenure systems, and work relationships. These patterns may have originated in pre-Incaic times but were profoundly altered by the landed estate or hacienda system which prevailed from the mid-seventeenth century to 1953.
