Abstract:

While population pressures increase in the traditionally settled areas of many Latin American countries, a number of these nations have within their boundaries vast, virtually unpopulated regions. The advance of settlers into these unpeopled tracts has, at times, become nearly legendary, e.g., the swashbuckling bandeirantes of Brazil. This paper discusses some of the characteristics of various land settlement strategies and relevant considerations for evaluating the economic aspects of land settlement projects.
