Agricultural Economics I. / István Kuti, Andrea Karcagi-Kováts
Debrecen : University of Debrecen Service Sciences Methodology Centre, 2013
PrefaceAgricultural economics combines the technical aspects of agriculture with the business aspects of management, marketing and finance. Students are prepared for a wide variety of exciting careers in the marketing of commodities sold and inputs purchased by agricultural producers; agricultural finance; and management of agribusinesses, farms and ranches. In addition, many graduates pursue successful careers in government service, economic development, commodity promotion and agricultural policy analysis.We focus on teaching and instilling in students a desire to think, use logic and reason, solve problems rather than simply memorize and recite the subject matter and learn. This book is intended for English speaking foreign students arriving mostly from developing countries to study agricultural economics at the University of Debrecen, Faculty of Applied Economics and Rural Development.The first part of this textbook (Agricultural economics I. ? Micro- and macroeconomic bases) intends to provide students with knowledge of economic principles for the study of agricultural economics encouraging them to develop an understanding of and capability to use the tools of economic analysis in solving a broad spectrum of problems in economics. Understanding is developed through coursework in economic theory, agricultural markets concentrating mainly on micro- and macroeconomic basis of agricultural economics. Coursework is supplemented through collaborative work with a wide variety of research topics available. Students are trained to be decision makers through course work and practical experience in agriculture, analytical and communication skills, team building, economic theory and agricultural policy. The motivation for the first part of this book is mainly to serve as an undergraduate textbook in agricultural economics so it is useful especially for those students who are less familiar with economic analysis. For those who have previously taken an introductory course in economics it can serve for refreshing their knowledge in agricultural economics.Agricultural economics today includes a variety of applied areas, having considerable overlap with conventional economics. The field of agricultural economics has transformed into a more integrative discipline which covers farm management and production economics, rural finance and institutions, agricultural marketing and prices, agricultural policy and development, food and nutrition economics, and environmental and natural resource economics.The second part of the textbook (Agricultural economics II.) is primarily focused on students studying agricultural economics on a wide range of degree and professional programmes, at both undergraduate and graduate levels. It contains a common core of classes introducing students to policies important to agriculture: global agricultural economy, food-, energy- and environmental security; agricultural environment and resources; consumption and food supply chains; risk and uncertainty; prices and incomes; market structures; plant biotechnology; trade and development. With increasing competition for limited land, water and other natural resources throughout the world, as well as growing concern about environmental degradation of various sorts, there is a growing need for professionals who can assist in the process of balancing economic and environmental tradeoffs, of understanding market structures, price volatility, plant biotechnology, risk and uncertainty and of developing international trade.Prof. Dr. Jozsef PoppDr. Andrea Karcagi-KovátsDr. István Kuti
