    "This excellent expository film concentrates on conveying a specific and, in my judgment, important idea -- in developing societies, a definable combination of factors contributes to the fates of contemporary rural individuals:

    1. a national policy whereby credit is granted to farmers to improve their agricultural technology and their marketing opportunities

    2. economic development which increases employment possibilities outside of agriculture

    3. the amount of land and cash the grandparent generation had available

    4. the number, birth order, and sex distribution of the children who live to inherit the property in each generation

    5. the individual's personal qualities of health, strength, and willingness to take risks. . . ."
