Agricultural Input Subsidies
Oxford University Press

In this part of the book we provide essential theoretical and empirical context for the rest of the book. The three chapters

  • set out and extend more conventional theories on agricultural input subsidies’ strengths and shortcomings;

  • review limited information available on twenty-first century agricultural input subsidy programmes in sub-Saharan Africa; and

  • describe Malawi’s specific political, economic, and agricultural features.

These chapters structure and underpin the description, analysis, and evaluation of the Malawi subsidy programme, and the wider application of that evaluation, in the remainder of the book. (p.14)
