It gave large farms a competitive edge, which enabled them to outbid family farms in the land market. Geographic differences in the increase of large farms In my opinion, this was the background for an increase of large farms, coupled in many cases to a fragmentation of small farms into semi-proletarian dwarf holdings. 40However, it appeared in a variety of concrete forms, depending on natural and socio-economic conditions. In the more peripheral zones in south and east Europe, landlords were still largely dependent on agriculture.
The role and dimension of the government machinery were considerably extended, and mergers and cartels boosted the power of the new captains of industry. Working-class movements appeared and had to be accommodated or contained by the political system. Increasingly, the demands of the wealth-controlling rural classes could only be realized if these were endorsed by other interests too. The feasibility of different types of government intervention was vitally affected. The defence of the free movement of labour by manufacturers, trade unions and related politicians strongly narrowed the opportunities for labour control policies aimed at keeping down farm wage costs.
The focus shifted from textiles, iron and steam to steel, chemicals, electricity and the internal combustion engine. Cut-throat competition provoked waves of mergers and cartels that gave birth to a new giant form of enterprise. The rise of trade unions hastened the introduction of serial production techniques and routine-like labour processes, which enhanced entrepreneurial control over production and enabled a more rapid increase of labour productivity. Supply and demand for farm products These changes radically transformed the conditions of agricultural development.
