 1993 Undergraduate Prize Winning Paper
Arguments Made Against Agricultural Collectives It is commonly argued in the West that collectives, as such, were responsible for the suppression of peasant livelihood and that the recent economic improvements are the direct consequences of their dismantling.
Since crop yields had advanced nationwide earlier under collective farming and declined in the advanced areas under household responsibility, the burden of proof, it seems to me, lies with those who insist that the new incentive structure contributed decisively to increased yields.
As was seen, the ability of collectives to develop, maintain, and utilize a large-scale water-control infrastructure and the conviction among the peasantry that grain production under the collective is, for this reason, more efficient than that under the household, together shed doubt upon claims that scale is of no benefit in agriculture.

I am speaking not only of developed collective farms, which have machines and tractors at their disposal, but also of collective farms in their primary stage, which represent, as it were, the manufacture period of collective-farm development and are based on peasant farm implements.
I am referring to the collective farms in their primary stage which are now being formed in the areas of complete collectivization, and which are based upon the simple pooling of the peasants' implements of production.
The great importance of the collective farms lies precisely in that they represent the principal base for the employment of machinery and tractors in agriculture, that they constitute the principal base for remoulding the peasant, for changing his mentality in the spirit of socialism.

 CHINA: Growing grassroots initiatives to re-collectivise farming
Long plagued by poor farming output and resulting starvation, 18 families of Xiaogang Village — risking imprisonment and possibly their lives — made a secret pact in 1978 to shift to family-based cultivation and distribution.
Leaving no doubt that the delegation is seeking to steer Xiaogang back to collective farming, it wrote a message in the visitor’s book in Nanjie that it wants to learn the best way to strengthen the collective economy as a means to achieve “collective prosperity”.
On their own, these local initiatives in collective cultivation do not constitute a return to socialist production, because the broader centrally planned economic organisation under a working people’s government is no longer present.
