Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alexander V. Chayanov (1888-October 3, 1937) was a Soviet agrarian economist, and scholar of rural sociology and advocate of Agrarianism and cooperatives. He was a proponent of agricultural cooperatives, but was skeptical about the inefficiency of large-scale farms. Chayanov's skepticism was rooted in the idea that households, especially peasant households which practice subsistence farming, will tend to produce only the amount of food that they need to survive. He believed that the Soviet government would find it difficult to force these households to cooperate and produce a surplus.show more
