Structural Transformation, Diversification, and Economic Development (2019_2_40_008)


We examine the patterns of the reallocation and diversification of economic activities in rural and urban areas in the selected developing countries, including pre-WWII Japan, in Asia and Africa. The empirical patterns of diversification will be associated with the characteristics of the rural economy, whereby we can discuss the role of rural and urban sectors at an early stage of economic development.
