Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
TThis history of Mormon economic policies and institutions
as they developed and changed from 1830 to1900 focuses on the Church as a central planning
agency in the development of the Great Basin region. Among the topics covered are: Church
immigration policies; colonization; the role of the Church in developing manufacturing,
agriculture, and transportation; Mormon communitarianism; and the economic
interrelationships between Mormons and non-Mormons. The author argues that Church policies
developed out of the nineteenth century communitarian movement and were particularly
well-suited to the development of the Great Basin region. The unique characteristics of the
Mormon economy essentially ended at the close of the nineteenth century as the Mormons were
absorbed into the United States capitalist system.
