In general, this category aims to provide researchers, policy analysts and economic planners WEB links to sources of information as well as discussion fora related to the economics of International Agricultural Trade and of Environmentally Sustainable Agriculture.
In particular, the editing of this category is from the perspective of a business economist concerned with the impact of globalization of trade and services on firms as a result of the Uruguay Round General Agreement on Tariff and Trade. Although in agreement with the economic theories presented in support of such Agreement, it is foreseen that, in practice, the transition (or failure thereof) by the formerly protected domestic agribusiness firms into globally competitive industry players may and have caused households considerable suffering.
Sites dealing with agriculture primarily are NOT appropriate.
Community Supported Agriculture (or CSA) is a system developed by local peoples to create a localized food supply around the customer base.
Each farm offers shares to consumers and they receive, in turn, a portion of the harvest. This helps to defray the initial operating cost of each season's harvest.
This category is for journals and books dedicated to the study of agricultural economics.
Most research activities will either occur in academic departments or in research institutes (which may either be in universities or external). Both of these are included in this category.
