dc.description.abstract <p>This paper examines the important role played by agriculture and human capital of farmers and farm people in economic growth and development. In particular, we place great emphasis on the importance of positive technology shocks to agriculture for igniting what may become long-term economic growth with increased food production per capita, an improved standard of living, migration of labor from the farm to the nonfarm sector and the rise of cities.</p>
