Summary

This book examines the structure and organization of the agricultural industry, then discusses basic micro and macroeconomics principles as they apply to agriculture. Principles of economics are used to demonstrate to the reader that theory actually makes reality more understandable. The book is at the right level and is kept consistently up-to-date-the only text that has been consistently revised!
