Agricultural development principles. Economic theory and empirical evidence

, : Agricultural development principles. Economic theory and empirical evidence. Agricultural development principles Economic theory and empirical evidence: xxx + 478

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.
