Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
The community of Orderville attempted to reconcile Mormon
communalism with capitalism by trying to realize full employment and equality while
stimulating production and profit. The social experiment lasted for over ten years but
eventually ended in transformation to a more individualistic community typical of the
broader society. The author examines social order, settlement pattern, economic
organization, subsistence and economic self-sufficiency, distribution of income,
management, changes in wage and property systems which eventually led to the end of
communalism, and finally the auctioning of communal property to the individual
