 Ber Borochov - The Economic Development of the Jewish People
In "The Economic Development of the Jewish People," Borochov expounds a central thesis of Socialist and Labor Zionism, which is that Jewish economic development is abnormal and "unhealthy." Because they are prevented from owning land and in engaging in normal pursuits, Borochov argued, Jews tended to congregate in non-essential, peripheral occupations.
The natural gravitation of the Jew toward the occupations that require mental labor exemplifies the entrepreneuring spirit which drives the Jewish laborer to become a small, but independent, business man. The so-called economic individualism is deeply rooted in the landless history of the Jewish people.
Zionism is the logical, natural consequence of the economic revolution that has been going on within Jewish life for the past few hundred years.
