Reading Group Guide

Sadoulet and de Janvry do a good job in clarifying how intricate the measurement of economic phenomena often is, and in showing practitioners how to use available data to analyze policy effects. The book is recommended for all those who are involved in agricultural development policy but are not at home with present-day quantitative analysis. As such, it is a very useful complement to many textbooks on rural development and agricultural development policy.
