What about disguised unemployment in agriculture of developing countries and all theories around?

Auteur :
SCHMITT, G.

Description :
Disguised unemployment in agriculture, often seen as the cornerstone of development economics, is questioned in this article. Empirical evidence is presented first. Next a theoretical model of the farm family as the source of labor supply and the farm demanding labor as an imput is deducted. However, the demand for labor by the farm is competing with labor demand for production of non-agricultural products. Perfect factor markets are analysed as well as imperfect markets with their implications for resource allocation. Further implications of structural dualism are finally discussed. - (l'A.).
