Book Description

July 2, 2009 0131592483 978-0131592483 5

Known for its strong coverage of macroeconomic theory and international trade, this book provides readers with a systematic introduction to the basic economic concepts and issues impacting the U.S. food and fiber industry. Using a building block approach, the authors discuss individual consumer and producer decision-making, market equilibrium and economic welfare conditions, government intervention in agriculture, macroeconomic policy and international trade. This new edition provides examples not only from the farm, but also throughout the entire food and fiber industry and features updated chapters on natural resources and the government’s role in agriculture. Some additional new features include:

  • Enhanced coverage of natural resource issues
  • Revised chapter on the government’s role in agriculture.
  • Expanded and Updated! Testing Your Economic quotient sections

This is a perfect resource for anyone interested in agriculture.

This book is boring, as is the class, but it came on time, was in good shape, and was everything you should expect an Economics book to be. If you are needing this book for a class, I do recommend ordering it!

I'm sure it would have been great if I had received the correct edition that I paid for. I ordered 5th edition and received the 3rd edition. What good do you think that's gonna do me?
