AGRICULTURAL MODERNIZATION IN MARKET AND PLANNED ECONOMIES: THE GERMAN EXPERIENCE

In this paper, views of large scale farm organization are traced from the 19th century to date. Then, the structures of East and West German industry and agriculture are described. Next the productivity of East and West German agricultural land and labor are compared for the period 1958-1969. The paper is concluded with general observations on the effects of collectivization. Implications are drawn for nations now evaluating alternative solutions to economic and social problems of agricultural development.
