The failure of a national rural policy is a complex phenomenon. Suffice to say that such policy never emerged, despite frequent appearances on the presidential agenda. Browne examines the reasons why no sustained rural lobby was ever created independent of farm interests. The circular explanation finds that lobbies fail to develop in the absence of a supportive base on which to place their demands for change.
