Example text

Equally, however, the faster agriculture declines, the earlier will appear the kinds of political and social concern over strategic self-sufficiency and the decline of the rural community and environment which provide the rationale for state support of agriculture. Thus, despite in many ways rather different political systems, in all three East Asian countries, over a relatively short period of time, farm interests have been mobilised and broad political support generated for the rapid growth in agricultural protection and subsidy which has been observed.

Japan, Korea and Taiwan will not be the last of the Asia Pacific countries to struggle with the ‘agricultural adjustment problem’ to which many Western industrial nations have equally not yet found a viable solution, and our research led us on to consider the lessons to be learnt about the economics and politics ofagriculture in economies which have successfully achieved ‘East Asian-style industrialisation’. The ESRC’s funding enabled us to collect and analyse material in Britain and inJapan, Korea and Taiwan and we would like to express our gratitude for this and for the support and encouragement offered by the Director of the Pacific Asia Programme, Dr Gerry Segal, and by other participants in it.

In some cases, the measures are also intended to reduce the costs and pains of adjustment for farmers, providing incentives to increase scale and acquire large-scale equipment, or retraining and other kinds of assistance to those leaving farming. 9 The East Asian countries, as they have joined the ranks of industrial nations, have proved no exception to this pattern. As industrialisation has proceeded, the share of agriculture in GDP and in total employment has rapidly declined and, as subsequent chapters will show, has now fallen to levels comparable to those of the industrial nations of Europe and America.
