Choice and uncertainty in a semi-subsistence economy. A study of decision making in a Philippine village


, : Choice and uncertainty in a semi-subsistence economy. A study of decision making in a Philippine village. Choice and uncertainty in a semi subsistence economy A study of decision making in a Philippine village: xv + 335

The thesis deals with the response of Philippine rice farmers to uncertainties and associated risks in the production environment. Farmers' risk behaviour is analysed within the context of land use intensification through the adoption and utilization of the so-called 'modern seed-fertilizer' technology. This technology has been criticized for its capital intensity and high risk compared to existing technology.
