(p.77) Four Foreign Landowners
Pesos and Politics

Mark Wasserman

Stanford University Press

Discusses the various types of foreign landholders in Mexico during the period under study; it uses case studies of large owners, more modest owners, lumber companies, colonizing schemes, and lumber companies. I argue that foreign investors, while owning large tracts, rarely yielded profits. They required considerable capital, a steady market, and secure labor force to succeed.
