The economies of many developing countries are heavily reliant on their agricultural and food sectors and much recent development effort has been targeted at these areas. Such work is often carried out against a background of recent policy shifts towards market liberalization, with a need for rapid formulation of recommendations from scarce data. Economic Analysis of Agricultural Markets: a Manual is aimed particularly at economists working on the problems of markets and marketing policy under such conditions. Following a presentation of the theoretical and historic background of economic analysis of markets, the book deals in detail with data collection and analysis, including the theoretical limitations and the techniques required for fieldwork. The final examination of agricultural market liberalization in Africa provides specific examples of the issues. It will be relevant to all those responsible for providing advice to governments, aid agencies and non-government organizations on marketing policy reform.
