Excerpt: Over the last two decades market liberalisation has profoundly influenced agriculture in both developed and developing parts of the world. Market liberalisation, driven by the WTO and earlier GATT Rounds, has resulted in the deregulation of domestic food markets and the opening and expansion of international markets. Ponte (2000) examines the economic and social impacts on African agriculture of liberalisation and associated microeconomic reform with less government credit, less parastatal production in food markets and removal of price supports and input subsidies. Marsh and Runsten (1995) report microeconomic reforms in Mexico such as the 1989 deregulation of trucking and exports. Goodman and Watts (1997) provide a broader picture of effects of international trade expansion in food products on the economic and social environments in developing countries. These studies show market liberalisation is changing patterns of agricultural production in terms of on-farm crop and livestock mixes, increasing total production in physical and value terms and changing the types of food products entering international markets. The studies also show traditional values and habits in agriculture are being replaced by transactions that increasingly reflect a ?cash culture?.
