Abstract

Industrialization is one means by which rural communities can realize greater employment and family incomes. It provides economic growth for rural areas when it more than offsets the reductions in farm employment that result from the ongoing mechanization and capitalization of agriculture. But in other cases rural industrialization may only slow down the rate at which a community is economically deteriorating. Though rural industrialization may contribute to rural development, it is by no means a cure-all.
