Economic development in a fledgling democracy: the potential of the Polish agricultural extension system

Economic development in a fledgling democracy: the potential of the Polish agricultural extension system

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics 25(1): 101-111

Agricultural economists who serve as educators in emerging democracies have the opportunity to contribute to economic development by building human capital. A channel for educators to share lessons learned in these countries could benefit individuals preparing for assignments in foreign countries. Understanding the cultural and social differences in decision-making systems is critical to successful educational program development and implementation. Individuals in the emerging democracies often need training in management and market economics to apply at institutional as well as personal levels. Similar training for recipients of economic development funds could result in more effective application of funds.
