Example text

The traditional way of looking at sectoral policies in a slowly changing long-term planning framework is no longer quite appropriate since agriculture is a very important part of the traded sector. Policies that bear on it have a crucial role to play even in the short run. This experience has placed new demands for flexibility and adaptability on policymaking and has highlighted the linkages between economy-wide and sectoral policies. Perhaps the most important mechanism through which economy-wide policies affect agriculture is the real exchange rate, to which a great deal of attention has recently been given.

It was everywhere dualistic, with small-scale industry and agriculture lagging behind. Agricultural improvements diffused significantly only under special circumstances. Growth spread to the agricultural sector only where agricultural institutions provided a sufficient, increasing, and widely distributed surplus for home market expansion; and where governments built transport networks linking internal markets, provided agricultural extension, and educated their populations — as in Germany and Japan.

4. Conclusions What does this review of the nineteenth century development experience have to contribute on agricultural policy today? We shall hazard a few thoughts on lessons to be drawn from history. First and foremost is the conclusion that, for economic growth which is both selfsustained and welfare enhancing, the development of an agricultural system providing for a substantially, widely distributed marketable surplus is essential. Of the strategies that we have reviewed, only those based on good tenurial institutions and developed human resources accomplished this objective.
