Summary "Drawing on insights from theoretical applications, empirically based approaches and case study experiences, this book contributes to the improved design and use of trade and related policy interventions in staple food markets." "This book will appeal to policy analysts and decision makers influential in the design and implementation of trade and related market interventions, as well as students of development economics. Researchers contributing to debates on the use and impacts of trade and related market interventions in staple food markets in poor countries will also find this volume of great benefit."--BOOK JACKET.
