Book Description
Fifty or more developing countries still depend mainly on the tropical commodities or minerals that they produce. Over the past half century, it has become abundantly clear that: encouraging so many countries to grow coffee, sugar, cotton and other crops has been a disaster. Small farmers get only a tiny share of the final tag on these commodities on supermarket shelves in the North. Prices have collapsed, terms of trade between north and south have deteriorated. And in their wake, living standards, foreign exchange earning, tax revenues, and economic growth in developing countries have plummeted.
