Institutional Aspects of Ozark Decline

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

The causes of Ozark decline, as measured by the depletion of its natural resources lie deeply imbedded in certain habits of its people. These babits trace back to frontier life, when trees and fertility existed in such ahundance that there was no need to conserve them. Now when the shift must be made from an exploitative system of agriculture and forest use to an economic and social structure based on foresight and leadership, the descendants of pioneers find their inherited attitudes and institutions in conflict with the measures necessary for a more prosperous regional life. Stern economic realities are working to resolve the conflict in the long run, by creating new attitudes.
