COSTA, Francisco de Assis. Market and production of lands in Amazon: evaluation referred to technological trajectories. Bol. Mus. Para. Emílio Goeldi. Ciênc. hum. [online]. 2010, vol.5, n.1, pp. 25-39. ISSN 1981-8122. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1981-81222010000100004.
The dynamics of the rural economy in the Amazon has been observed through the phenomenon of deforestation and evaluated primarily by environmental risks and distribution inequalities associated with that. The article shows possibilities of change. At the same time, demonstrates the obstacles to overcome. Starting from the observation of the agrarian economy of the region as a totality in motion, establishes the foundation of this development on six technological trajectories, explaining the asymmetries of capacity between them in context of their relations with the institutions. Among these, special focus is led to the mediations which ensure the production and market for land.
