Summary: This is the fifth of five volumes summarizing the results of the World Bank research project, A Comparative Study of the Political Economy of Agricultural Pricing Policies. The project consisted of eighteen country studies that employed a common analytical framework and entailed close collaboration between the investigators and the project's three codirectors. 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 factors determining the degree of agricultural intervention, and the attempts to reform unsuccessful policies.
