Agricultural development principles. Economic theory and empirical evidence

Agricultural development principles Economic theory and empirical evidence: xxx + 478
Agricultural development principles. Economic theory and empirical evidence
The objective of the book is to draw together empirical research on agriculture in developing countries over the last 30 years into a coherent theory of agricultural development. A central hypothesis is that neoclassical economic analysis can lead to more effective strategies and programmes for increasing agricultural production, income and employment in all less-developed nations. The Hayami-Ruttan model of induced development (1971 and 1985) is used to integrate the theory.
