Abstract : Land reform has been widely and successfully used as a means of defusing rural insurgencies in a number of underdeveloped countries. Demographic changes suggest that a major problem of the future will deal with the problems of urban poverty since urbanization is a significant trend throughout the earth. Current systems of development aid, however, have done little to improve the lot of poor people. A method of capital reform which provides workers with a second income based on their ownership of the capital means of production-is submitted as worthy of US governmental funding support. The idea, untried in practice, is visualized as analogous to land reform in the countryside. (Modified author abstract)
