Economics of Resources, Agriculture, and Food provides a solid foundation of both micro and macro economics in the context of the contemporary problems being addressed by agricultural economists. In addition to the usual examples taken from production agriculture, the book is laced with examples from and references to agribusiness, international agriculture, and consumer problems. Realizing that what was once "farm policy" is now comprehensive "resource, agriculture, and food" policy set in an international setting, these authors now provide readers with a single source that encompasses the numerous, recent developments and trends in this ever-changing field. . . a field that has become more demanding and more exciting than ever.
