latifundia

latifundia
Large land-holdings in Latin America which originated as imperial grants to settlers from the Spanish crown. With the incorporation of that continent into the world economy they slowly evolved from a form of feudalism into capitalist estates producing meat, hides, and crops for export. The distribution oflatifundia lands through land reform is often seen as a means of promoting economic and social development.
