Agricultural Ecology and Changing Economic Systems: Lessons from the Bulgarian Case
The inattention to environmental problems in East European agriculture reflects assumptions that the problems result from central planning. We argue that the focus on economic systems undermines policy support for environmental sustainability in transforming economies. We examine the link between three problems in Bulgarian agriculture and the socialist and capitalist systems, finding that an analysis of concrete institutional forms is more important to understanding environmental problems. We conclude with policy implications.
