We present a fully specified medium-scale dynamic general equilibrium model that can be used as the macroeconomic framework for development planning. Structural peculiarities of low-income developing economies are emphasized, including limited access to credit markets by households, a prominent natural resource sector, limited labour and capital mobility,...

Thus, from the mid-1970s to the early 1990s, the government financed a universal fertilizer subsidy program, provided cheap credit to the smallholder, and controlled maize prices. This system began to break down in the...
