Only 20% of the land area is naturally arable. In the past decade, India has emerged as a major agricultural exporter, with exports climbing from just over $5 billion in to a record of more than $39 billion in India became the world’s seventh-largest exporter of agricultural products in , surpassing Australia. While dependency theory highlights some truths — e.g., the consequences, particularly for small countries, of world price fluctuations for undiversified economies; the “export” of recession from the rich countries to the poor countries — it is, in my view, both fundamentally flawed and a major impediment to progress in Latin America.
