Summary

For one-semester introductory course in agricultural and environmental economics intended for the non-major. This innovative text provides a broad view of the food system, with its emphasis on the links among financial institutions, the macro economy, world markets, government programs, farms, agribusinesses, food marketing, and the environment. It illustrates the six economic concepts which form the foundation of the economist's decision making process including supply and demand, opportunity cost, diminishing returns, marginality, measuring costs and returns, and the externalities of transactions. Presented in a non-threatening conceptual framework, the material covered in this text maintains a strong attachment to the application of agricultural economics to the real world.
