Farmer and the budget

Ultimately, money is finite and innovative ways are needed to measure the cost of lost opportunities. Policymakers could then learn from the follies of previous and

current policies. Among other things, development policies have given rise to socio-economic crises in Indian farming. The government needs to understand this before formulating future policies and actions. Merely making farm sector allocations that seem to benefit everyone but the farmer is hardly the best that the finance minister can do.
