Example text

Therefore, the key issue for the elasticity of the aggregate supply of nontradables in rural areas in such a stylized economy boils down to the existence in equilibrium of underused resources of labor, land, and capital that can flow into new production of nontradables stimulated by demand shocks. What evidence is there of underused resources in rural Africa? While this question has not been conclusively studied, strong anecdotal evidence suggests the existence of such resources. There are two main arguments.

Potential export proceeds are also forgone when incremental income is spent on goods that could instead have been exported out of the region. Thus, to estimate agricultural growth multipliers, it is necessary to classify all intermediate goods, final goods, and services into nontradable and tradable items. The key difference between the two in the present context is that locally produced nontradables by definition have no market outside the local area. Locally consumed nontradables also have no source of supply from outside the local area.

Having such a high share of food consumption in the nontraded sector in parts of Africa (especially inland West Africa) implies that exogenous rural income growth has great potential to pull underutilized resources into the food sector. Thus, potential growth multipliers are high, even if consumption of locally produced manufactures is low. Rural Income Distribution and Growth Linkages Consumption patterns typically change across the income spectrum, and the nontradable content of intermediate inputs and final commodities consumed varies also.
