We find that competition has an important ...

Vietnam’s agrarian transition in the 1990s has closely followed a now classic policy scenario for economies in transition. First one privatizes the main productive assets in this case agricultural land-use rights then one legalizes their free exchange.

Big Ten Media Day: Ron Zook Offers Hope, Wisdom, and Encouragement
