New Threat to Economic Role of the State

The economically successful developing countries are characterised as having a strong “developmental state”. But this role of the state is coming under attack in new global rules being created. _ Food is one of the most important and emotive of all issues. As consumers, we can’t survive without it.Agriculture also employs the most people in most developing countries. Ensuring farmers have enough income is key to development and social stability. Some countries that did not achieve this have faced first rural disgruntlement and then upheaval.
