dc.descriptionTo fully promote the publishing sector in ACP countries, and in particular its role in information for agricultural and rural development, there is a need to convince investors, whether internal or external, statal or private, of the value of a book to society. What are the financial gains that arise from the right reader having enriched her or his knowledge, and applying it, whether it is technical, organisational or literary? What are the economic gains of the cultural aspects? If economists can estimate what the gains are of building a covered market or a silo, or a link road from a village to the main road, then surely we can express the worth of a book. We invite readers to send suggestions on how to formulate the so-called Book Equation. Please use the addresses on page 15 or email: book-equation@spore-magazine.org
