From land abundance to land scarcity. The effects of population growth on production relations in agrarian economies



From land abundance to land scarcity. The effects of population growth on production relations in agrarian economies



Population, food and rural development: 77-100



The chapter accounts for changes in the diverse set of production relations characterizing agrarian economies induced by long term increases in population growth and, more specifically, by changes in the relative scarcity of land and labour. The approach pays particular attention to the constraints that arise when market mechanisms for risk diffusion and intertemporal markets are incomplete and information is costly.
