Collectivise. What is the rate of it. Moving the peasantry on to the road of socialism. Mix of coercive pressures and incentives. Described in Vivian Shue's book. Brilliant strategy where the party took over rural banking and put in place that delegitmated the private agriculture. If in coop, easy access to resources like workers and seeds. Degree of voluntarism, of course with self-interest. Perhaps trust of CCP helped. Conservatives argued that industrialization and collectivism should go in tandem. Mao thought otherwise, radical change to institutions at village level. By end of 1956, most households been enrolled in the APC. Among Mao's concerns, political consequences of rapid collectivism. Challenge of socialism out of the way, now focussing on production. Everything must be appropriately accelerated. Called for complete mechanization of the countryside. Some opposition. Called for more relationships between industries. Set of policies that are relatively flexible and liberal.
