In this study of linear programming and Monte Carlo simulation are employed in complementary fashion to investigate efficient resource allocation in land settlement at the micro-level of the family farm. The Second Five Year Development Plan (1974-78) emphasises land settlement as an integral part of enhancing the economic development of Indonesia. The thesis argues that it is crucially important to design the family farm - the core form of agricultural organisation in land settlement schemes - as a viable unit capable of providing the settlers with a reasonable income and of contributing surpluses in the context of regional development. This double-pronged approach differs from the previous policy (in operation since 1905) which laid more stress on the 'social-humanitarian' aspects with the result that the settlers tend to 'bring their poverty with them' to the new areas.
