Motivation and Incentive Structure for Planned Rural Development
Development — particularly economic development — has become an explicit goal of governments virtually everywhere in Africa. In the last two decades economic development has also become a new religion in the ‘new states’ of the Third World. This religion has attracted a number of high priests with a range of distinguished institutional and professional associations: international experts, institutional and commercial consultants, development economists, and a variety of social scientists, including applied anthropologists.
