Land Utilisation-A Note

September 4, 1976 port Series No 537, Geneva 1974. 52 WHO, -"The Work of WHO, 1975", op cit. 53 Let me be clear on this point. Although there may be occasional cases of corruption or, more dangerously, of political connivance with government counter-insurgency intelligence forces by the staff of malaria control programmes, I think that we should generally assume, until the contrary has been proved, that public health workers are motivated by humanitarian concern for the welfare of the entire working class (themselves included). We will often find I expect (as in the case of the US I DAB) a situation where top political, business and military leaders (and perhaps some people in higher levels of the health profession hierarchy) will have a fairly clear political conception of how and why they seek to use public health to control the working class. While at the same time, public health workers may be pursuing their own humanitarian ends either in ignorance of the way they are being used, or in spite of it. The point is a politically important one because it suggests LAND is not a timeless, static concept. The 350 million acres of cultivated and that India has is as good as 1,050 million acres, for instance, if it is used three times a year. That is to say, it is the degree of utilisation which determines the effective amount of land resource of a country. In India, however, the intensity of cropping declines as farm size rises. In a sense, then, big farmers are holding back the growth of India's land endowment.

Some Aspects of Foreign Trade of India and China

The Theory of Unequal Exchange, Trade and Imperialism

Imperialism entered its current phase in the 1930s. The distinguishing mark of this new chapter of history is the unequal exchange. Flows of royalty, profits, dividends, etc, are but a small trickle com- pared to what is being extracted from the third world by the imperialist countries through unequal exchange in international trade.

tenders are issued, notices are generally sent only to 4 or 5 short-listed suppliers with which the governmental agency in question has had a previous relationship. Hence it is up to the potential supplier to ensure, through contacts and promotional activity, that they are included in the short-list.

The Dialectics of Underdevelopment

The Dialectics of Underdevelopment Ranjit Sau THIS is the n-th review of a remarkable book: ''Cairitalism and Underdevelopment in Latin America, Historical Studies of Chile and Brazil", by Andre Guilder Frank,1 In its broad sweeps in a; global panorama, its incisive analysis of the complex historical process over centuries, and its open challenge to the Marxist orthodoxy, this book stands out, as a rare example of scholarship, courage of conviction, and, to an extent, confusion. It does not answer all the questions of underdevelopment, but certainly it raises a few of paramount importance.

sured) for 1968-69 and 1969-70. There has been a slight increase in inequality of land owned, land available for cultivation (Farm Size A), and land cultivated (Farm Size B). However, there has been a slight decrease in inequality of Farm Business Income. The latter result is difficult to explain, given the increase in inequality of the cultivated area (Farm Size B), unless it is purely due to random factors like weather. Although we have presented Tables show- . ing movements along the agricultural ladder (a Ia Dantwala and Rao) we hesitate to place much weight on them. An interesting feature of them is the large number of changes taking place, suggesting a non-stationary agricultural sector. The limitation of our study has already been mentioned, especially in that we did not look at wages and employment, or at non-farm wealth and incomes of these farmers.

Some Aspects of Inter-Sectoral Resource Flow

This paper reports some preliminary findings on the flows between agriculture and industry, or rural and urban sectors, on both current capital accounts. It gives an estimate of the consumption of 'industrial' and 'agricultural' goods in rural and urban areas over the years from 1952-53 to 1964-65. With these figures it would be possible to construct a major part of the trade between agriculture and industry, or between rural and urban sectors.

On Value, Capital and Capitalism

The grand structure of neoclassical economics is falling apart, but its place is being taken by a different form of 'vulgar economy'. After a prolonged period of hostility and tension, the hatchet of the Second World War has been at last buried. The flag of the Chase Manhattan Bank has been hoisted at 1 Karl Marx Avenue, Moscow and its penumbra is about to reach Peking, The days of hot and cold wars nearly over, the third world continues to be a theatre of increasingly intense economic rivalry among various shades of imperialism.
