The peasant betrayed : agriculture and land reform in the Third World by John P Powelson( Book )

12 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After studying land reform in 16 countries and offering illustrative examples from 11 more, Powelson and Stock conclude that government land reforms generally harm the rural poor more than help them. Detailing case after case in which government intervention has impoverished the peasant, the authors find only a few cases in which the government has made the peasant better off. In contrast, they show that in Third World countries where the state has left farming to the farmer, agricultural output has soared, famine has been overcome, and the welfare of the peasant has vastly improved

The moral economy by John P Powelson( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the moral economy, John P. Powelson argues that laws do no more than consolidate what a society has realized culturally. No major historic reform has lasted more than a few decades unless consensus on it had been achieved. Instead, reform arises our of the many positive-sum potentials in the world social order, which intelligent people will find so long as no one can stop them. As citizens defy central authority to seek mutual goals at grassroots levels, moral economic behavior becomes grounded in a balance of power among social groupings and spreads upward. Organized into groups, people hold each other accountable for their contracts instead of depending on a groverment of international agency to impose morality upon them."--Publisher's description

Institutions of economic growth a theory of conflict management in developing countries by John P Powelson( Book )

7 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nations undergoing rapid economic growth require new institutions-both formal organizations and informal modes of interpersonal behavior. John Powelson develops a theory of institution-building to explain how nations choose such institutions, what kinds they prefer and why, and in what ways the institutions' effectiveness (essentially, their conflict-resolving capacity) may be measured. Originally published in 1972. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton Univer
