Hastings B. Moloko, Davis H. Ng'ong'ola, Joseph Dzanja, Thabie Chilongo, Hastings B. Moloko, Davis H. Ng'ong'ola, Joseph Dzanja & Thabie Chilongo
While Malawi’s per capita cereal production may be higher than her per capita cereal consumption, Malawi is a net cereal importer and thus food insecure. The food situation is much worse in Malawi’s prisons because inmates generally eat one meal per day. The general objective of this study was to determine food budget shares and elasticities for the food stuffs commonly eaten in Malawi’s prisons. Using structured questionnaires in face to face interviews, the study...

Organic Farming Suffices to Feed a Country: a Large-Scale Linear Programming Model to Develop an Organic Agriculture Plan for Turkey

Bulut Aslan, A. Yonca Demir, Bulut Aslan & A. Yonca Demir
A frequently voiced critique is that due to lower yields on organically managed farmlands, one cannot feed a country using organic agriculture. In this paper, we aim to mathematically disprove this claim by developing a linear programming model and produce a detailed agriculture plan for Turkey sufficient to feed her population with a 2400 kcal daily menu on average, solely comprising of organic foods. The model uses information about population sizes and food needs of...

Hence, it is crucial to provide insights to policy makers on the most influential variables that affect the public debt to boost...

A study on the impact of economic freedom on economic growth in ASEAN countries

Dung Viet Tran & Dung Viet Tran
We examine the impact of economic freedom on economic growth using data of ASEAN countries over the period of 2000-2017. To capture the characteristics of ASEAN liberalization purposes, we use different proxies documented in prior literature such as trade freedom, labor freedom and financial freedom as proxies of economic freedom. We document that higher economic freedom and higher labor freedom lead to higher economic growth. However, more trade freedom appears to inhibit economic growth in...

Economic growth, environmental degradation and business cycles in Eswatini

Andrew Phiri & Andrew Phiri
This study investigates the impact of the business cycle on the Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) for the Eswatini Kingdom over the period 1970-2014. To this end, we employ the nonlinear autoregressive distributive lag (NARDL) model to capture the long-run and short-run cointegration effects between economic activity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions over different phases of the business cycle. Our findings reveal that economic activity only degrades the environment during upswing of the economic cycle whilst...

Factors Contributing to Changes in Agricultural Commodity Prices and Trade for the United States and the World

Getachew Nigatu, Flavius Badau, Ralph Seeley, James Hansen, Getachew Nigatu, Flavius Badau, Ralph Seeley & James Hansen
Agricultural commodity prices play an important role in the production decisions of farmers and ranchers, including planted/harvested acreage of crops or inventory of livestock and, thus, the supply of agricultural commodities. This report examines changes in global demand and supply factors that contributed to agricultural commodity price declines during 2014-19 and changes that contributed to the rising trend in prices that peaked in 2007/08 and 2011/12. Additionally, the report projects how global commodity prices and...

Are farming companies emerging from non-agricultural sector better managed than conventional farms in Japan?

Yukio Kinoshita, Nobuo Kimura, Yukio Kinoshita & Nobuo Kimura
Conventional Japanese farmers have faced a longstanding challenge in adapting to a changing business environment.While the deregulation of the Agricultural Land Act in 2009 has led to the entry of companies from the non-agricultural sector into agriculture, another reason seems to be the general capitalisation of the agricultural industry into the wider economy. However, few management studies have analysed these new companies. An important question is whether the corporatisation of farm business is accompanied by...
