Main methodological approaches. J. M. Keynes concentrates on the following: the problem of extended reproduction needs to be addressed by looking at the demand side of the market; the market economy cannot self-regulate, and therefore state intervention is inevitable; overproduction crises are undesirable; the main instrument of state regulation is an effective budget policy capable of solving the problem of ensuring employment of population and production equipment


4. Conclusion

The effectiveness of agricultural entrepreneurship has a direct impact on sustainable agriculture and rural development. There is a need to distinguish the concepts of «state regulation» and «state administration».
