9780470593622: The World Food Economy

The World Food Economy, 2nd Edition continues to provide a broad introduction to the economics of food and agriculture. As consumers and producers continue to feel the effects of expanded global commodity trade, food aide, and national legislation in response to globalisation, this text assesses the challenges of satisfying food demand in both rich and poor countries alike. This second edition includes a new chapter devoted to biofuel developments and the price of energy in the United States and other nations. Other revised topics which the authors have paid specific attention to include price-trends and new research about trade restrictions and policy-induced distortions in prices. Each chapter addresses economic and demographic trends, patterns of agricultural development, food consumption, and key food issues while comparing and contrasting economics amongst countries. This regional focus ensures that the information presented throughout The World Food Economy is relevant and current for students.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The World Food Economy, Second Edition

“Even for my students who had little or no knowledge of economics and agriculture, the Southgate et al. book was accessible and engaging... The authors’ approach stimulated critical thinking about food, markets, poverty, agriculture and agricultural development... I could not have selected a better book for my course.”
Drew L. Kershen, University of Oklahoma

“(The authors) show that there have been real economic gains in the battle against world poverty. In addition, they supplement this with non-economic data, such as height and longevity, which fit in beautifully with the strcture and content of my course... The World Food Economy covers the economic aspect of the food problem better than the other books I use.”
Thomas De Gregori, University of Houston

“I intend to continue using this text in the second edition... The book is accessible for a wide range of students and can be used to expand their understanding of economics and of the globalized economy in which we live.”
Alex Winter-Nelson, University of Illinois

“Three experienced authors, a convincingly clear structure, and a competently applied dose of economic theory are the well chosen ingredients of The World Food Economy. This excellently written book will be a highly valued contribution to the reading list of economic courses focused on world food problems.”
Martina Brockmeier, University of Hohenheim, Germany

“The large amount of historical and institutional detail... helps students understand the different observations about demography, agricultural performance and food policy in different regions.”
David Schodt, St. Olaf College

“The authors combine economic concepts and real-world applications with clarity and insight, giving readers the necessary tools to fully comprehend today’s headlines and the forces that are driving international food markets.”
Julia Paxton, Ohio University
