Dynamism and Enervation: Contrasts in India's Agrarian Economy

    Modernization of agriculture has yet to occur in major regions of India. Many see equity-oriented policies by government and cooperative organizations among cultivators as the best if not only solution. Such a strategy represents an implausible departure from the historical process of agricultural development in India. A differential ecology has produced distinctive patterns of farm-level decisions, land-tenure systems, marketing arrangements, and government interventions. An endogenous growth model capturing major features of this process casts doubt on the feasibility of an egalitarian strategy. Moreover, the model provides insight into why India has not launched a more vigorous effort to develop agriculture, and what factors might induce such an effort in the future.
