The phenomenon of contract farming (CF) has remained a controversial subject in the literature. In the recent years, the interest of policy makers, researcher and development planners in CF in general and broiler farming in particular as a mechanism to govern linkages between farmers and agribusiness firms has increased considerably. The agri-business proponents advocate CF as a key strategy for rural transformation based on a dynamic partnership between small holders and agro-industrial enterprises. It provides opportunities to both the parties to benefit from modern technology, marketing facilities and other services to boost their incomes. However, there is a counter argument regarding the benefits of CF to the small holders and reject the idea of equal partnership. They argue that CF may subjugate the peasantry to increased control and exploitation by capital, leading to a peculiar form of proletarianization. Since the CF system in India is a recent phenomenon, research in this field is still at the initial stage, particularly in case of broiler. The book presents the economics of contract choice of broiler production under contract and non-contract production system.
Revision with unchanged content. Fishery policy makers would often benefit from information on how a policy might change fishermen behavior before the policy is implemented. Discrete choice models may be used to make predictions about these potential changes. Most of the simulation work done so far, however, has not been validated. In this book, a discrete choice model of fishing location choices is estimated and used to simulate the impacts of a spatial policy on the behavior of fishermen. The simulated redistribution of fishing effort is then compared with the actual redistribution of effort that had occurred with the implementation of this policy. Results from the presented case study underline the inherent problem of the simulation not being able to capture the fundamental change in the nature of the choice problem that occurs with the change in policy. Addressing this problem will be important as discrete choice models continue to be used to inform policy makers. Anybody with an interest in understanding human choices related to the use of natural resources may benefit from reading this book. Fisheries managers, fisheries economists, and graduate students in fisheries economics may find it particularly useful.
At the end of the 20th century and in the beginning of the 21st century there is an enormous change in global economy. At the same time with competitive economy the industrialized countries emit greenhouse gases which cause global climate change. Day by day the life expectancy increases and economic competitions of the nations change due to open economy. Again the natural calamities such as cyclone, earthquake and tsunami comparatively increase due to global warming, which decrease economic development. So that in the 21st century economy faces with difficult challenges. The net national product, sustainability and social welfare economy, green accounting, optimization in economics, voting system, game theory and health valuation due to environment pollution are parts and parcel of modern economy. The work is prepared considering the economic development emphasizing the above topics.
Revision with unchanged content. In this book, we first develop a simple two-period model to examine the parent’s optimal choice of children’s time. We identify factors such as wage rate, school fees, education returns, degree of children’s altruism toward their parents and the parents’ discounting rate that influence the parents’ optimal choice, and discuss their impacts on the optimal choice. Two basic uses for Children’s time are: working in the labor market and attending schools. Schooling today may make children more productive in the future. The opportunity cost of schooling is the forgone wage rate in the labor market. Allocation of children’s time is therefore mainly determined by education return, wage rate in labor market and school fees. Many existing models in the literature cannot explain the coexistence of schooling, poverty and the coexistence of child labor and affluence. We extend our basic model to explain the above two paradoxes. We show that, when education return is high and the household is willing to endure extra hardship caused by the child attending school, the coexistence of schooling and poverty can emerge. On the other hand, when the wage rate for child labor and schooling fees are higher than education return, affluence and child labor can co-exist.

Demand for and title registration in Kenya is driven by potential value of land, educational attainment of the landowner and the proximity of the location of land office. The empirical results provide strong support for the model, suggesting that choice of title registration depend on benefit and the cost of registration. The over fifty years record of land title reform has not necessarily produced the expected economic development because the choice of registration rested on landowner on voluntary basis. The problem is the existence of an externality that prevents landowners from fully internalizing the social gains from the reform. Rather than promoting efficient use of the agricultural land, the functionality of land control board has not been able to spur rural development as it has been envisioned. The book offers a contrasting perspective to previous studies, which question the viability of current land title registration programme for its failure to increase economic development.
The book is intended for the researchers in Operations Research, Network, Economics and Management Science. This book contained the basic concepts of Game Problems, Goal Game Problems and the solution methodology. The main feature of this book is developed the similar concept and methodology for Entropy Game Problems and Entropy Goal Game Problems. Numerous problems are given either as worked at examples or as exercise. The main silent features of this book are that the researchers have the scope to extent the work in Multi-choice Matrix Games, Multi-choice Matrix Goal Games, Multi-choice Bimatrix Games, Multi-choice Bimatrix Goal Games, Multi-choice Entropy Matrix Games, Multi-choice Entropy Matrix Goal Games, Multi-choice Entropy Bimatrix Games, Multi-choice Entropy Bimatrix Goal Games etc. We hope this book lights on new researchers.
Consensus is high in the development circle that improving agricultural markets in developing countries is vital to alleviate poverty since the poorest people in the world are farmers residing in developing countries, and predominantly rely on agriculture. This is especially important for Ethiopia where the vast majorities of people are poor and live in rural areas with high level of dependent on agriculture. However, agriculture is characterized by subsistence farming with low level of market participation. Despite a wealth of literature on grain marketing in Ethiopia, research on a commodity specific market channel choice employing transaction cost economics is scant. This book, therefore, attempts to apply a transaction cost analysis to explain the determinants of market channel choice decisions among smallholder maize farmers in one of the maize surplus areas of Southern Ethiopia. The book notes that farmer''s decision to choose a particular market channel is influenced by the different forms of transaction costs as well as household specific characteristics. The analysis would be much useful for policy makers, donors as well as researchers in agricultural marketing.
