Rural Economics

What is Rural Economics

The study of regional economies is referred to as rural economics. Rural economies encompass both agricultural and non-agricultural enterprises; hence, rural economics is concerned with a wider range of issues than agricultural economics, which is more predominantly concerned with food systems. Attempts are made by rural development and finance to address more significant issues that are present in rural economy. The absence of economic activities and poverty in rural areas are often the root causes of these economic problems, which are often tied to the movement of people from rural areas. There have been some interventions that have been quite successful in certain regions of the world. Rural tourism and rural electricity have served as anchors for the transformation of economies in certain rural areas. These issues frequently result in income discrepancies between rural and urban areas.
