MetadataShow full item record
The article is devoted to analysis of Wł. Grabski's (one of the leading Polish interwar economists) opinions concerning the most favourable agrarian structure. Taking into account the fact that Poland's economy in the interwar period possessed distinct characteristics of economic backwardness, the evaluation of "optimal" — according to Grabski — agrarian structure is performed from the viewpoint of a start to accelerated economic devełopment. In this article the author was trying to provide an answer to the question to what degree the agrarian structure as proposed by Wł. Grabski was conforming to postulates posed before agriculture by contemporary theories of development of a backward economy. The final conclusion is that although the ideał agrarian structure as proposed by Grabski could be reconciled with present-day general theses of the development theory its essential shortcoming, in relation to conditions prevailing in the then Polish village, was the fact that it made no provisions for the agrarian overpopulation of the Polish village.
