It is obvious that nowadays the Romanian village is confronted with major transformations. As a fundamental social and economic entity, it accumulated, over the centuries, a large series of important issues. Especially "the peasant issue", which took shape at the beginning of the XIXth century, is still influencing the evolution of the rural world, being present with both its dimensions. The aim of this paper is to present how the land issue continues to play a crucial role in the non-profitable Romanian agriculture, obstructing the exploitation of its considerable potential. This aspect is far more complex as we are still passing through a difficult economic crisis, not to speak of the world food crisis.
