The issues in this text are treated in a current context intended to capture the interest of students. Solutions to agricultural problems are not prescribed. Rather, emphasis is placed on developing an understanding of the problems, policy alternatives, and their consequences. Economic principles are introduced throughout the book to develop an understanding of how the tools of analysis can be used to provide insight into the economic impact of particular policies.
