Our present enquiry is into the conditions presented by the Oberland which determined reception of the putting-out system there. Opportunities to settle, as derived from the legal conditions of the Zurich economic order, were factors restricting or favouring industrialisation. The absence of common property in the mountain parishes was not the only reason why opportunities for settling were better in the Oberland.

This was the first, purely financial, restriction which the community members hoped would prevent them from being 'inflicted with a mighty and very burdensome invasion and settlement of new inhabitants, each one with little The preconditions for industrialisation 23 27 and inadequate money, having moved here from other places'. Only wellendowed new members were welcome to the communities.
