"This paper began with four questions: (1) Is the lack of progress in poverty reduction in Tanzania just a brief interlude before the trickle down of the benefits from the current pattern of growth? (2)Is the lack of progress in poverty reduction solely a reflection of a failure of policy to allocate enough resources to agriculture?(3) Could there be a bigger failure of policy design?
