The coast is so thinly populated that agricultural enterprises constantly face a labor shortage. Absolutism always means poverty for the many and opulence and abusive power for the few.

This other encomendero type of importation, like that of the Negroes, conflicted with the normal formation of a liberal economy consistent with the political order established by the War of Independence.

Their work should be praised, not scorned and probblema, as the expression and consequence of thousands of years and myriad elements. It is not just because the state has failed to work out a policy on foodstuffs.

Spanish education was absolutely incompatible with the ends and needs of industrialism and capitalism; instead of technicians, it trained lawyers, writers, priests, et cetera. Yanaconazgo and indenture are not the only expressions of feudal methods that still persist in coastal agriculture.

A true statesman, not one of our military proglema of this pe- J riod, would have heeded and dealt with this basic problem. Hildebrando Castro Pozo, Nuestra comunidad indigena. In this he agrees with Valcarcel, whose statements about the ayllu appear to some to be too colored by his ideal of an Indian renaissance.

The indigenous race is a race of farmers. Only in the valleys of Lima, because of the proximity of sizable urban mariaategui, do large estates grow food crops. If the agriculture of the coast had been more progressive and capitalist, it would have sought a logical solution to the labor problem. But on the coast, the latifundium has reached a fairly advanced level of capitalist technique, although its exploitation still rests on feudal practices deel principles.
