Factor Market Imperfections and the Land Rental Market in the Highlands of Eritrea  Theory and Evidence

ABSTRACT. This paper uses data from rural Eritrea to assess the effect of endowments in non-land factors of production on land-renting behavior of farm households and to test for transaction costs of adjustment in the land rental market. A two-stage approach for participation in the market as landlords or tenants is used for analysis. Results show the importance of the land rental market for adjustment to non- or semi-tradable non-land household endowments. There were indications of significantly higher transaction costs faced by potential tenants than by potential landlords.
