Abstract

O tema da reforma agrária é examinado por três ângulos: a ação do Estado, a demanda existente e o debate acadêmico. A partir da análise de diferentes perspectivas em jogo, indica-se como possível resposta ao título do texto, que sejam concentrados recursos humanos, financeiros e logísticos numa região que cubra a metade norte de Minas Gerais e se estenda até o Maranhão. Os mecanismos de desapropriação e aquisição ali ainda são possíveis por serem mais baratas as terras do Nordeste, levando em conta a escassez de recursos e a necessidade de maximizar a eficácia governamental. Devido à expressiva presença negra, também essa escolha estabelece a transversalidade com a questão étnica. A reforma agrária poderia, assim, torna-se uma política expressiva no Brasil, beneficiando segmentos sociais em maior escala e com resultados efetivos na redução da pobreza rural.------------------------------------The land reform issue is examined by three angles: the state action, the existing demand and the academic debate. From the analysis of different perspectives, indicates as a possible answer to the title of the text, which are concentrated human resources, financial and logistics in a region covering the northern half of Minas Gerais and that extends to Maranhao. The expropriation mechanisms and acquisition are still possible because the land are cheaper in the Northeast, taking into account the scarcity of resources and the need to maximize the governmental effectiveness. Because of the expressive presence of black people, this choice also establish a connection with the ethnic issue. Land reform could thus becomes an expressive policy in Brazil, benefiting social segments on a larger scale and with effective results in the reduction of rural poverty.
