A multisectoral, general equilibrium analysis of agricultural and development issues in Bangladesh

, : A multisectoral, general equilibrium analysis of agricultural and development issues in Bangladesh. Dissertation Abstracts International A, Humanities and Social Sciences 49(11): p.3433

A model is developed to examine some key policies in the agricultural sectors of Bangladesh, and quantitatively to assess their effects on a wide range of goals. The model belongs to the genre of computable general equilibrium (CGE) models, neo-classical in nature but with structural rigidities. As applied to Bangladesh, the model seeks to analyse the effects of policy interventions in the agricultural sectors.
