Agricultural and Resource Policy is an invaluable text for students of agriculture, economics and business. It is also an important reference for those interested in the continuing development of agricultural industry. “David Godden is astutely aware of the many issues that an agricultural economist needs to deal with in analysing production, trade, environmental and political issues, all of which impinge on successful solutions. To my mind it is by far the most readable and valuable book on agricultural economics one can have.” John Kerin, Minister for Primary Industry, 1983-91.
