Social Change in Montana. Montana Economic Study-Staff Study.
Bigart, Robert J.
An interrelationship exists between economic development and social change in Montana. The community's social life is affected by outside intervention or investment in the local economy, industrialization in the community, and technological changes in agriculture. The basic developments affecting these areas of social change are discussed in the three sections of this publication, which are: (1) Some Effects of Industrialization on Social Life in the Community; (2) Effects of Industrialization on Community Autonomy; and (3) Social Effects of Technological Change in Agriculture. Section 1 explores general social effects resulting from development, using studies of social change in communities outside the State and relating the results to Montana. Local autonomy as affected by industrialization and its effect on social change is discussed in section 2. Data on the ratio of active proprietors of unincorporated business to the number of establishments are given in tabular form. Section 3 reviews the effects of technological changes and the social and political ideals of Montana's rural population. (NQ)
