Transforming Traditional Agriculture

This paper critically examines the economic logic underlying Professor Schultz's concept of Traditional Agriculture and his policy recommendations for transforming the same into a modern efficient agriculture (Theodore W Schultz, "Transforming Traditional Agriculture", Yale University Press, 1964.) and points out a certain element of the situation which it seems have escaped his attention. The paper is thus divided into two parts. In the first, I shall raise certain questions of economic analysis. In the second, I shall indicate certain relevant Issues which I think Professor Schultz has missed.
