The Question of the Competitive Capacity of the Small-scale Enterprise in Agriculture
- 15 Downloads
This kind of large-scale enterprise [the capitalist kind] which strove from the outset to raise the productivity of labour as much as possible, that is to provide as large a product as possible with as little labour as possible, was already technically far superior to the small-scale enterprise a generation ago. Its superiority consisted not merely in the application of machines but also in extensive improvements to the land (drainage, irrigation works), artificial fertilisers, the breeding and employment of superior varieties of farm animal, the further treatment within the enterprise itself of raw products, e.g. milk, a highly developed division of labour, a planned organisation of labour, and so on and so forth.
