The Moral Economy of the Mobile Phone in Sub Saharan Africa

Thanks to Richard for this report .A study of how the mobile phone is incorporated into relations between husbands and wives, children and parents, peers, and neighbors in Uganda and Ghana. This project looks at the mobile phone as a gift, as a device for transferring money, and as a shared community resource. How are the benefits of mobile phone access distributed according to a cultural logic of rights and responsibilities?

Interesting to contrast with behaviours actvity around mobile phones in other parts of the world.
