Between political control and efficiency gains: The evolution of agrarian property rights In Mexico

As a product of the Mexican revolution, the ejido was originally organized as an institution with the multiple aims of achieving political control over the peasantry, representing peasants in their relations with the State, and assisting production by smallholders. These multiple objectives, which were initially consistent and supported a successful phase of growth and improved welfare, became increasingly contradictory, precipitating a major crisis in both production and rural welfare.
