This chapter develops a model of agricultural transition. The model is used to illustrate the technical and allocative inefficiencies under Socialism, and to explain how efficiency changed during transition with privatization, land reform, disruptions, and other reforms. It provides an empirical illustration how different initial conditions could lead to different patterns of transition.
