The Agrarian Question in the 21st Century
Vol – L No. 37, September 12, 2015 | Sam Moyo, Praveen Jha, and Paris Yeros
Perspectives
Drawing from the late Archie Mafeje’s work and revolutionary spirit, this article revisits the “classical” agrarian question and responds to scholars who argue that the “agrarian question is dead”–indeed, those who feel that “we have been liberated from the constraints of agriculture, land and nature.” Far from being dead, it is argued that the agrarian question remains real to people’s politics in the 21st century and will remain so, especially in the global South where rural movements are finding alternative ways to wrestle monopoly-finance capital that continues to run amok.
