The Rationality of Peasants’ "House Growing":A Case Study of Village S in City W

Wang Sanyi & Lei Hong  
This study examined the "house-growing heat" during the urbanization of the suburban areas through a field investigation of a selected village in the outskirt of City W. The data were collected mainly via interviews supplemented by observations and documentations. From the subjective angle of those who were engaged in "house growing," the researchers looked for the reasons why the peasants were keen at "house growing." The study found out that the peasants’ "house growing" was an action choice not out of their actual needs but mainly out of their desires for surplus compensation,business operations,higher incomes,psychological balance,and emotional belongingness. The trigger of the peasants’ "house growing" rationality was the government,which was the radical internal cause of this "house-growing heat." The study concluded that more concerns and research should be directed to how the government was to adjust its own behavior.
