Agricultural Policies in Europe and the USA

£29.99

Product description

The rural sector continues to play a fundamental role in the social and economic life of high income countries, even though its contribution to their overall economies is declining. In recent years the management of farming in particular has assumed international dimensions.

In this book, the authors examine both the institutional and economic aspects of policies affecting rural development in the European Union, with particular attention to the other main protagonist in world food and agricultural trade: the USA. They describe the context within which the Common Agricultural Policy of the EU was established, the basic mechanisms of the policy for the main sectors for agricultural production and their adaptation over time in line with changes in the world economy.

Condition: Some minor rubbing and shelf wear to the dust jacket. Inside the text block is in excellent condition.
