Enclosure and the Yeoman

Robert C. Allen

Oxford University Press

Most, if not all, discussions of agriculture's contribution to economic development usually began with broad ranges of four possibilities. This chapter discusses how the English agriculture performed only two of these possibilities: the release of labour to other sectors and the increase in agricultural output. The discussion also states that these contributions were made mainly in the seventeenth century.

Keywords:   agriculture, contribution, economic development, possibilities, release of labour, agricultural output, seventeenth century
