French and European agricultural development: an historical misinterpretation? (In French)
AbstractWhile accused for wrong ways he has leaded (North/South imbalance, environmental troubles, food crisis, rural desertification…), agricultural development has lost credibility, and with him public policies linked. With an historical point of view, we attempt in this paper to show that fifty years ago, this agricultural development was sensible. But as its logical did not change in time, several misunderstanding ways growed. And finally we are nowadays with a great confusion risk : the belief that the wrong ways are the agricultural development itself, and the statement that agricultural development doesn’t need any public policy.
