Summary: This report summarizes the results of an agricultural study in Asia. The project employed a common analytical framework and entailed close collaboration between the investigators and the project's three codirectors. This volume deals with six countries in Asia: Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. The purpose of the project was threefold: to provide systematic estimates of the degree of price discrimination against agriculture within individual countries and to explain how it changed over time; to determine how this intervention affected such key variables as foreign exchange earnings, agricultural output, and income distribution; and to gain further insight into the political economy of agricultural pricing policy through a study of the motivations of policymakers, the economic and political factors determining the degree of agricultural intervention, and the attempts to reform unsuccessful policies.
