Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Economics of Agricultural development examines the causes, severity, and effects of persistent poverty, rapid population growth, and malnutrition in developing countries. It discusses potential solutions to these problems, and considers implications of globalization for agriculture, poverty, and the environment. The authors provide a broad view of development and world food issues, on the means for utilizing agricultural surpluses to further overall economic development, and on issues related to trade and capital flows. The roles of the government and of international institutions in promoting broad-based development are also explored. Economics of Agricultural development covers topics related to sustainability of the natural resource environment, gender roles in relation to agriculture and resource use, and the importance of macroeconomic policies as related to development and trade and the success and failures of such policies and the implications for what might be done in the future to encourage more rapid agricultural and economic development.

Synopsis:

Persistent problems with poverty, rapid population growth and malnutrition in many developing countries are among the most serious issues facing the world today. This book examines the causes, severity and effects of these problems, as well as potential solutions.

The authors consider the implications of globalization of goods, services and capital for agriculture, poverty and the environment; and identify linkages in the world food system, stressing how agricultural and economic situations in poor countries affect industrialized nations and vice versa.

Focusing on the role that agriculture can play in improving economic and nutritional wellbeing and how that role might be enhanced, this book is essential reading.
