Srinivas and Vieira Filho (2014) on the legacy of Arthur Lewis (1954)

Farm versus Firm? Analyzing the institutional questions of Arthur Lewis (shown) and Hayami and Ruttan (1985) at Globelics 2014, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

TCLab Visiting Scholar Dr. Vieira Filho will present a joint paper by Smita Srinivas and Jose Eustaquio Vieira Filho (2014) "Farm versus firm: learning and technical linkages of agriculture and industry", at the globelics economics conference on learning and competence development. The analysis looks at two sector models of the economy and the assumptions made in Hayami and Ruttan (1985) and Arthur Lewis (1954) on learning and institutional transformation. The paper argues for economic development policy that has an important place for agricultural alongside manufacturing.

TCLab's new postdoctoral scholar Jose Ribiero and Smita Srinivas are building a program on how technological learning is manifested in three countries.
