A Collection of Slides on Rural Development and Public Policy


  • Debertin, David L.


The slides that follow provide an introduction to rural economic development and public policy. I have scanned the original slides and inserted them into modern PDF and PowerPoint presentations. Some of the hand-made charts have older data, but could be easily updated. These color slides were created in 1979-1980, before the widespread use of personal computers and computer graphics. Programs such as Harvard Graphics were unavailable, let alone in PowerPoint. The Department of Agricultural Economics at the University of Kentucky employed a technical graphics artist who was responsible for designing the charts and graphs by hand, as well as providing visual art work. I have purposely largely kept the slides looking like they would have looked for a presentation made in 1980. These now public-domain slides provide a useful introduction to rural development and public policy for undergraduates, and may still have applications in extension.
