Abstract:A brief sketch of macro-economic features of the Sudan is followed by a survey of its market structures in agriculture. Next, internal tendencies of prices and income distribution are dealt with in a product-wise analysis to provide some evidence on the presumable effects of the New international economic order. These are finally discussed in the context of the current development strategy. Stabilization and even an increase in export prices will hardly benefit the small peasants under the prevailing conditions of agricultural marketing. But even without a fundamental conversion of this policy, there are chances to increase the standard of living by specific interventions. This can be achieved in particular by means of more rigid controls of the markets and the promotion of marketing cooperatives to combat the practice of pre-harvest sales. Bibliogr., tab.
