Food & Resource Economics Group
September 15, 2010 - 12:20pm — Trevor
The Food and Resource Economics (FRE) group (formerly Agricultural Economics) uses rigorous tools of economic analysis to examine applied problems in the general area of food markets (e.g., trade and regulated markets, food demand analysis, food safety and biotechnology) and the economics of renewable resources and the environment (e.g.,trade and the environment, environmental policy).
The FRE group is comparatively small, so faculty members actively collaborate with other economists at UBC and other universities through both formal and informal networks and linkages.
Some units where we have cross-campus collaborations are:
