Resource efficiency and the market for family labour: small farms in the sertao of Northeast Brazil

Dissertation Abstracts International, A 37(8): p.5254

The objectives of this study were: (1) to develop an analytical framework which provides a basis for analyzing the allocation of resources among different tenure arrangements in Brazil; (2) to specify and estimate empirical models which provide the means to test the hypothesis about relative efficiency among tenant classes and factors affecting it; and (3) to analyze the empirical results obtained and to draw implications for extensions of the theory and for policy purposes.
