The IUP Journal of Governance and Public Policy, 2011, vol. VI, issue 3, 50-87

Abstract: There has been a fundamental development in the theory and understanding of market, private, collective and public organisations in recent years. This paper incorporates the achievements of the interdisciplinary New Institutional and Transaction Costs Economics and suggests a framework for assessing the needs and efficiency of economic organisations and public interventions in agriculture. Our new approach includes: study of farm and other agrarian organisations as governing rather than production structures; assessment of comparative efficiency of alternative market, contract, internal, and hybrid modes of governance; analysis of level of transaction costs and their institutional, behavioural, dimensional, natural and technological factors; determination of effective horizontal and vertical boundaries of farms and other agrarian organisations; specification of the economic role of government and the need for public interventions in agrarian sector; and assessment of comparative and alternative forms of public involvement in agrarian sector.
