BALCAZAR, Álvaro. FUNDAMENTAL ASSUMPTIONS OF THE AGRARIAN REFORM AND ITS ACTUAL VALIDITY. Rev.econ.inst. [online]. 2001, vol.3, n.4, pp.103-116. ISSN 0124-5996.

This article discusses the belief that redistribution of land tenure is a fundamental condition for social and economic development. It reviews the effectiveness of prior public programs of land redistribution and reviews the following four assumptions: 1. The traditional factors of production are the main source of the creation of value and wealth. 2. The redistribution of property of traditional factors determines distribution of income and social and political power. 3. To improve democracy, economic equity and social justice it is necessary to redistribute property of the traditional means of production. 4. The high cost of land prevents the development of agricultural production.

Keywords : agrarian reform; redistribution; production factors; economic equity.
