Abstract: "Papers 40 and 52 in this series have demonstrated for Asia and sub-Saharan Africa that the extent to which rural people make up their livelihoods from sources other than agriculture is much higher than previously thought. In the same vein, this paper reviews extensive evidence from Latin America, distinguishing between diversification arising from traditional agriculture and that driven by exogenous influences, and highlighting the importance of the latter."
