Who Shall Succeed? synopsis
This book records the emergence and institutionalization of socialinequality in San José, a pioneering agricultural village located on the island of Palawan in the Philippines. The early chapters reconstruct the historical conditions surrounding the San José settlement and its growth under conditions of relative equal opportunity.
Community development is examined in detail through the experiences of eight immigrant farmers, all self-employed men have some apparent successes, and others are clearly failing. By comparing and evaluating the causes of the successes and failures of the pioneers, Professor Eder emphasizes that the origin of inequality in San Jose depends less on the arrival time of individuals, capital amounts, or other factors, such as those found in personal differences.
Socialinequality, for the most part, was based on the level of motivation and some kind of "work efficiency" that some men and women brought to the border and others did not.
