Latifundio
A latifundio is a huge estate belonging to a single landowner, of the kind found in southern Spain and in many Latin American countries. Historically, they are associated with backward farming methods and poverty among the workers living on them. This is because most of the rich landowners lived away from their estates and were not over-concerned with productivity. The social problems caused by latifundios led to agitation for land reform in many countries. Despite land reform programmes, and more dramatic solutions such as the Mexican and Cuban revolutions, the legacy of the latifundio still prevails today in many countries.
