Abstract : A discussion is presented of the agrarian situation in Indonesia and of the political consequences of the failure of all rural development programs since the achievement of independence in 1949. Some conclusions are drawn concerning the order of magnitude of the agrarian problem facing Indonesia. The most salient fact is that, according to current estimates by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, in the 1960-1966 period rice production increased at a rate of 1.6 percent per year whereas the population growth rate was 2.4 percent.
