Ethnicity and entrepreneurship in Morocco: a photo-ethnographic study
The majority of the people in Morocco are Indigenous Berbers; they are Muslim but not Arab. Morocco is also home to Christians and Jews. Arabic is spoken along with French, Spanish, and Berber dialects. Pluralism appears to have encouraged occupational clustering, and economic sectors reflect ethnic communities. This article incorporates the use of photographs to give an account of entrepreneurship in Morocco. It discusses spheres of economic activity and demonstrates how a middleman minority influenced commerce.
