Abstract

This study explores the local wisdom of Samin Blora's economic behavior. This qualitative research is located in Karangpace Hamlet, Klopoduwur Village, Banjarejo District, Blora Regency, Central Java. The informants of this research were 10 people consisting of traditional elders, representatives of elders, 6 residents and 2 teenagers Samin Blora. Data were collected by observation and in-depth interviews with Snow balling technique. The data were analyzed using the interactive model of Miles and Huberman (1994), namely data reduction, data display, and drawing conclusions. The results showed that the local wisdom of Samin Blora's economic behavior, namely (1) the behavior of rice agricultural production was carried out on the principle of reciprocity between Samin residents, (2) rice production was not intended for sale and was more aimed at fulfilling the necessities of life, (3) the application of the principle of what's mine is yours, what's yours is mine, so that the necessities of life are met, (4) the behavior is not pursuing economics for welfare, but adhering to the principle of accepting all gifts as they are without demanding more than that.
