Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Suppose you have a large rural agricultural sector that demands agrarian reform in the manner of the best agricultural lands being subdivided into small plots and distributed to the peasantry.  You end up forgoing the bountiful production you could have obtained from economies of scale and possibly bring a famine upon the population.  That is part of the reason Haiti is so poor (and its land so unproductive) today.
