Which factors helped in the development of global agricultural economy?

  • By 1890 a global agricultural economy had taken shape, accompanied by complex changes in labour movement patterns, capital flows, ecologies and technology.
  • Food no longer came from a nearby village or town, but from thousands of miles away.
  • It was not grown by a peasant tilling his own land, but by an agricultural worker, perhaps recently arrived, who was now working on a large farm that only a generation ago had most likely been a forest.
