Example text

Thus it appears that under the impact of falling world grain prices during the Long Depression, Chilean landowners and workers took neither the "farmer road" of smaller, capitalist farms nor the "Prussian road" of reduced resident workers and wage labor. Rather, there was Arnold f. Bauer 26 reinquilinizaci6n in a form somewhat different from the original, and the consequent reinforcement of a manorial economy and landlord dominance in the countryside. Counterfactual Hypotheses How can the persistence, indeed the extension, of inquilinaje be explained?

Bauer least in principle, to negotiate their remuneration. There was no requirement for compulsory labor; no statute or peonage bound them to the estate. As railroad construction or mining offered better wages, some rural people chose to migrate and landowners had to compete with consequent changes in the wage level. Remuneration in the form of access to land or rations rather than cash, however detrimental to the development of an internal market for local products, does not alter the market function.

Landowners in a Coalesced Oligarchy Chilean hacendados subsequently maintained a disproportionate weight in national politics well into the twentieth century. But they did this not as a discrete class, as an abstract landed aristocracy, but as the important and often dominant sector of an economically and socially mixed oligarchy. 20 The road to Chilean democracy, thus, at least until the 1960s, involved neither the assault of an insurgent bourgeoisie on a backward landed aristocracy nor the presence of a fully commercialized and proletarianized agriculture, because until then, none of these things existed.
