While a number of books have presented a critique of traditional economic models, this book also seeks to develop an alternative model of economics inferred from observational empirical evidence. The book will be of interest to economics students and researchers; to economists; and particularly to universities and business schools teaching and researching non-traditional and ‘post-crash' economics.
The authors bring together international experts to offer new perspectives on how to take analytic tools from the realm of academic research out into the real world to address pressing policy questions.
Written for applied intermediate microeconomics courses, this book showcases the power of economic principles to explain and predict issues and current events in the food, agricultural, agribusiness, international trade, and natural resource sectors. The field of agricultural economics is relevant, important and interesting. The study of market structures, also called industrial organization, provides powerful, timely, and useful tools for any individual or group making personal choices, business decisions, or public policies in food and agriculture industries.
