Labor Transformation in Javanese Society in the 19th – Century

Erlina Wiyanarti

Abstract

The economic history of Indonesia in the 19th - century along with the social transformations that follow it, is important to be studied carefully. The expansion of the colonial government with the monetary economy and the arrival of private entrepreneurs have an impact on economic development. The emerging trend of the situation is the strengthening of interdependence between industrial and raw material producing countries; first party political domination over the second party; the subsystem colonized country from the economy of the colonial state. The studies regarding the history of labor development are still scarce, especially related to the issue of free labor around the 19th - century. The research problem is generally formulated in the form of question “how free labor developed within the economic structure of Java in the 19th - century”. The conclusion is that the understanding of Javanese society in the 19th - century on the status of free labor has changed gradually; the accumulation of occupation and the arrival of private entrepreneurs in the 19th - century strengthened the emerge of the free labor group; dualistic on Javanese's economy in the 19th - century had an effect on the position of free labor in society; the change on the political economy policy of the colonial government in the 19th - century, regarding the labouring system did not make a significant contribution to improving the welfare of free labor.
