William Liefert and Johan Swinnen

Agricultural Economic Report No. (AER806) 32 pp, March 2002

The report concludes that output decline has been an inevitable part of market reform and that the main goal of agricultural policy in the transition countries should not be to return output to pre-reform levels but rather to increase the productivity of input use.
