In Agriculture on the Road to Industrialization, John Mellor brings together a distinguished group of contributors to examine the lessons drawn from those less developed countries whose success in agricultural development accelerated growth of other sectors, with favorable effects on overall growth, employment, income distribution, and dispersal of utilization. The framework for discussion includes three components: increased incomes resulting from growth in the agricultural sector; the expenditure of that increased income; and the consequent expansion of other sectors of the economy.
