Resumen

DJENDEREDJIAN, Julio. Optimizing scarce resources in a frontier environment: The option for slave labor on large estancias of Entre Ríos in colonial times. Quinto sol [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.2, pp. 1-27. ISSN 1851-2879.

This article discusses the various pros and cons of replacing salaried workforce by slaves in large livestock production units of the Río de la Plata at the end of the XVIIIth century and the beginnings of the XIXth. Century. It tries to show that, beyond its convenience at costs level, to form a big group of slaves was an investment of some risk, and represented a significant financial effort. In addition, it involved a rearrangement of organizational production patterns, which were not necessarily simple.

Palabras clave : Manpower; Peons; Slavery; Livestock production; River Plate; Colonial era.
