Download and read online Transforming Agrarian Economies in PDF and EPUB The world's 58 poorest countries share the characteristic of a labor force overwhelmingly dependent on agriculture. Challenging the assumption that mass poverty and chronic hunger are unsolvable problems, this book systematically explores the multiple aspects of economic development in these countries, which are home to 60 percent of the world's population. The authors offer a broad-based development strategy to raise incomes through agricultural productivity growth and expanded rural employment. They present rich new information on the rural informal sector and on agriculture-industry interactions, and they analyze the impact of macroeconomic and social policies on the rural economy. Policy instruments aimed at bringing about broad-based development are carefully assessed - from fiscal policy to development of new seeds and farm implements. The book includes detailed case studies of countries that have seized - or missed - development opportunities.

Download and read online Bargaining power wages and employment in PDF and EPUB Providing a rich analysis, Bargaining Power, Wages, and Employment examines one of the most deprived groups in the country: agricultural laborers. This group constitutes 30% of all rural households, nearly two thirds of whom live below the poverty line, and accounts for about 60% of the total unemployed person-days in rural India. Using data for five different agro-climatic zones, the author develops a new bargaining model for the casual labor market at the village level. By exerting asymmetric power, the bargaining model determines the agricultural wage rate, the level of employment, and the employers' profits. Of particular interest is author Gaurav Datt's analysis of quasi-cooperative forms of behavior that persist even where labor unions are nonexistent as well as Datt's emphasis on the importance of building gender disparity into the bargaining process. Also developing a new research agenda for a hitherto neglected area of study, Bargaining Power, Wages, and Employment will be of interest to students, academics, and researchers in labor studies, agricultural economics, economic theory, and development studies.
