Development of Economic Analysis on Agricultural Land: In Marxian Economics Mainly

A literature review about the farmland accumulation and the farmland market problem in Marxian economics was performed. Analysis of farmland accumulation and the farmland market has been conducted by relating to agricultural capitalization. In other words, research was advanced as a differentiation of the farmer class theory, and competition between the large-scale farm and small-scale farm has attracted attention. Moreover, the study that paid attention to a characteristic of the farmland market structure was conducted historically, and the development of the farmland price theory was seen. In particular the farmland pricing theory under the scattered field system has attracted attention. The remarkable rise of farmland prices due to the high economic growth in Japan brought about a limit to agricultural economic analysis. The Imamura-Kajii theory that appeared around 1970 pointed out the productivity differential between classes of rice growers, and viewed an acceleration of the differentiation of farmer classes. Thereafter, studies that paid attention to leading farmers have developed.
