Econ Sub Saran Africa Analysis

Read Robert Bates’ book, Markets and States in Tropical Africa, preferably his revised edition. The first edition is on 2-hour reserve at Leavey, or you can get an inexpensive paperback copy on Amazon. Re-examine Carl Eicher’s paper “Institutions and the African Farmer”, on the reading list. Also look at the recommended reading by William Jaeger on page 6 of the reading list. You may also want to look at the more recent paper by Bates and Steven Block, “Political Institutions and Agricultural Trade Interventions in Africa”, (2011), American Journal of Agricultural Economics, Volume 93, Issue 2, pp.317-323 (that you can download online).
Together with the other readings on agriculture on the reading list and from class notes think about the political economy, write a 3-5 page, double-spaced essay on what pricing and rural investment policies have been in Sub Saharan Africa, how they have changed if they have and most important the political economy of why these policies have been the way they are/were. Use specific examples from the readings. I want a well-written, coherent story, citing the evidence you use. Include references at the end (not included in the 3-5 page limit).
