ECON 106: World Food Economy (EARTHSYS 106, EARTHSYS 206, ECON 206, ESS 106, ESS 206)

The World Food Economy is a survey course that covers the economic and political dimensions of food production, consumption, and trade. The course focuses on food markets and food policy within a global context. It is comprised of three major sections: structural features (agronomic, technological, and economic) that determine the nature of domestic food systems; the role of domestic food and agricultural policies in international markets; and the integrating forces of international research, trade, and food aid in the world food economy. In 2021-22, the course will evaluate the science, discourse, and potential outcomes surrounding the United Nations Food System Summit, to be held in late September 2021. The course will be offered for 3-5 units with the option to participate in a large modeling project. Enrollment is by application only, with a deadline of March 1, 2022.
