Economics of Agricultural and Food Markets

Description

The agricultural and food sectors are very important components of economies around the world at country, regional, and global levels. Although production agriculture constitutes a very small percentage of the gross domestic product (GDP) in developed countries, the food system (incorporating the transportation, processing, distribution, and retailing of food products) represents a much higher percentage of the GDP. The main aim of this special issue is to publish high-quality economic research investigating supply and demand issues related to the agricultural and food markets. This is because during recent decades there has been a significant change in various components of the world agricultural and food sectors. Among them are changes related to the supply and demand conditions of the agricultural and food markets, such as changes in consumer demand, the introduction of new technologies, the increase of food price volatility, and changes in the market structure. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Production and supply analysis
  • Efficiency and productivity analysis
  • Marketing and demand analysis
  • Price analysis and market structure
