Example text

As far as domestic relations are concerned, this represents List’s ideal of a balanced national economy in which ‘agriculture, industry and commerce’ are to be developed ‘in a proper relation’ (p. 444). The core of the national economy, in his view, is that the broad domestic market consists of both an industry made robust through protection and an agriculture sufficiently large to counterbalance it, and that exchanges take place in the domestic market between these two balanced branches. According to this view, either of the two extreme types of agricultural holdings, namely, ‘large farms’ [Großwirtschaften] or ‘minuscule farms’ [Zwergwirtschaften], induces poverty and proletarianization among the lower strata of the agrarian population, which are serious obstacles to building a sound nation-state.
