“Green Revolution and Redistribution of Rural Incomes: Pakistan’s Experience” A Comment

Publication Year : 1983

It will be shown in this paper that the majority of the above arguments are ‘not correct, and that part of the evidence which has been used to demonstrate the adverse consequences of Green Revolution on income distribution is particularly untrustworthy. The paper also demonstrates that Green Revolution has been the most viable rural development strategy ever pursued in Pakistan.” [4, pp.174-175]
