The Green Revolution: Inducement and Distribution
AbstractThe development and diffusion of modern varieties of rice and wheat in Asia were induced by changing resource endowments. More productive biological and chemical technologies capable of offsetting the effects of population growth are a necessary condition for simultaneous achievement of growth and equity. The new income streams generated by technical change have become a powerful source of demand for institutional change. But rapid growth in rural incomes is also dependent on growth of demand for labour in the non-agricultural sectors.
