PUBLIC POLICY AND THE RURAL ECONOMY OF PAKISTAN
This book focuses on the central issues in the development of agriculture and the rural economy of Pakistan. A major emphasis is on explaining the agricultural transformation process and examining the role of public policy.
The author contends that the uneven and somewhat erratic performance of the agriculture sector in Pakistan can be attributed mainly to the role of government. Most governmental policies have adversely affected the incentives for productive investment, increased agricultural productivity and the distribution of income and wealth between different farm groups.
