MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this paper is to outline Kenya’s agricultural situation since independence in order to evaluate agricultural pricing and wage policies and in particular their effect on output and employment. The information will be used in comparison with the policies in Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia. The comparison will be for a model being developed in Zimbabwe to determine the links and trade-offs from different agricultural crop pricing and formal wage employment policies on national objectives viz: income distribution, growth (output), employment, food self -sufficiency and foreign currency earnings. Work already undertaken in 'these countries will be collated and used as evidence and, whilst it is not anticipated that any new evidence will be brought to light for any one country, it is hoped that the comparison may highlight some important issues.
