    Europe

    Buying, selling and mortgaging farmland
    are still rare in Eastern and Central Europe. Not
    surprisingly, given the level of risk in many of these
    countries, short-term transactions, especially leasing, are
    more common. These short-term transactions do almost as well
    as land sales in allocating resources. Making them more
    secure by improving simple registration and enforcement
    systems and increasing public access to information on what

The authors' theoretical model suggests that removing restrictions on land markets will increase landlessness among the poor, but that there will be both gainers and losers, with uncertain impacts on aggregate poverty.
