Summary

A study of economic development in the Dominican Republic, this book argues that rigid economic structures and poor use of labour resources have created conditions that undermine the demand for labour, and maintain perpetual poverty and unemployment. Viewing the problem from a broad perspective, the author analyzes labour and credit markets, offers empirical data on agricultural yields, and examines such socioeconomic issues as the living conditions among the peasantry, the demand for immigrant Haitian labour, and migration from rural to urban areas.
