Abstract In an economic study of the Netherlands East Indies a distinction was made between absolute and relative deficiency in prosperity. Of the indigenous population 80 % was engaged in agriculture. Material economic development had lagged behind non-material development.

To raise the prosperity of the rural population further encouragement of the farmers was needed to intensify and rationalize their farms, and raise their production and efficiency in food and cash crops, especially in view of their rising needs and the growing population. Circumstances and conditions were then favourable for larger exports. The shift from subsistence agriculture towards export agriculture should however be gradual to allow an increase in economic resilience of the farmers.
