Commodity Sketches: Mini-cases from Latin America

Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


As shown in the in-depth studies of the previous chapters, contract farming can have far reaching effects on households and communities. Other ventures have had more limited impact or highlight specific issues that can be appreciated without an extensive knowledge of their context. This chapter consists of a number of ‘mini-cases’ from the authors’ fieldwork which provide more specific lessons for agribusiness planners.
