Description

This book offers a coherent perspective on the transition to a market-based agri-food system in the Central and Eastern European Countries and the New Independent States of the former Soviet Union. It provides a formal analysis of the entire food chain from farm inputs to final consumersincluding imports and exports. Covering the major components of the agribusiness sector, food security, multinationals, commercial law, finance, building market institutions, and theoretical approaches to problems concerning prices, transactions costs, and bilateral monopoly, this book makes ahighly original contribution to the literature on this topic and will be indispensable for agricultural and food economists.

Editorial Review

"Uses a systems perspective to analyze the entire food chain from farm inputs to final consumers, including imports and exports. Considers such stages as farm-level marketing, processing, distribution, and retailing. Other topics include food security, multinationals, commercial law, finance,and building market institutions. Theoretical studies are offered on such matters as prices, transaction costs, bilateral monopoly, and constraints on transition. Of interest to agricultural and food economists and to general economists interested in the economics of transition."--Reference andResearch Book News
