Finding the Middle Path: The Political Economy of Cooperation in Rural India

Synopsis

Indian and Western researchers use a comparative framework to explain the striking regional differences in performance by rural cooperatives for processing and marketing farm products in India. Demonstrating how institutional performance can be evaluated in developing countries, the analysis points toward general principles of organizational effectiveness, revealing the potentials and limitations of cooperatives as instruments of rural development.
