In general, Russia was regarded by many as being outside of the pattern of economic progress exhibited in Western Europe. The potential for future development was not denied, but some substantial hindrances were noted. R. Malthus explained that: Russia has great natural resources.

21 However, as the nineteenth century unfolded and technological improvements became possible, the relation of bonded labour to the factory changed as defined by government decrees, and the development of proto-capitalist factories began to occur. Peasants that had been ascribed to possessional factories were allowed to become members of other classes such as merchants or small householders, and free artisans with a newly acquired trade came into existence as a consequence of the decline of the possessional form of bondage.
