Title

Agricultural technology and the distribution of output in a traditional rural system

Author

Biggs, Stephen D.; Burns, Charlotte

Description

Draft paper prepared for the Edinburgh Conference on Appropriate Technology. In this analysis of agricultural policy, the authors see that a new type of dependency is emerging with the introduction of new technology. Landowners come to rely more on the services of machinery and less on the services of the landless households.
