There are two aspects to intra-household issues that should concern us. The net welfare effect depends on prior distributional features of the sector — the relative balance between net buyers and sellers and the relative weight given to tradables and non-tradables in the consumption basket.

Moreover, Beinefield in Jamalin an examination of the Economic Recovery Programme in Tanzania, found that the uneven impact of adjustment policies further exacerbated inequalities between men and women in that, because most rural women are responsible for subsistence food production, with only limited access to cash crop incomes, they suffer the full impact of input price increases arising from liberalisation but have little scope for benefiting from producer price increases.

If entrepreneurial skills, for example, are innate, active promotion policies have a small role to play.
