IMPLICATIONS AND NEXT STEPS
Rural economy and livelihoods in rural Myanmar have transformed profoundly, and extremely rapidly post 2011BUT: very different interpretations of what this means possible, depending on theoretical lens

2) Analyze the changing distribution of incomes among different segments of the rural population, defined by land ownership, landholding size, and gender.
