Abstract

Since the 1980s, world agriculture has become increasingly integrated. Some of the impetus for this global integration had its origin at the end of the Cold War, and stemmed from the continuing philosophical debate over the merits of planned economies versus market economies. Commensurate with this, many developing economies began replacing inward-looking, import-industrialization-substitution policies with outward-looking policies and with export-led growth. Many countries also undertook unilateral liberalization of their trade and investment policies.
