For courses in Introduction to Agricultural or Applied Economics.

Known for its strong coverage of macroeconomic theory and international trade, this text provides students 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.
