Former Agricultural Economics Faculty
We've introduced computer modeling systems in Newton County, Indiana and Niamey,Niger.We’ve analyzed alternatives for consolidating Indiana’s rural schools and studied policy options for international trade. We’ve taught students who now manage family farms and an array of agribusinesses, and still others who have gone on to top-level U.S. cabinet posts. We’ve taught our students the economics of world agricultural development, and we’ve helped world leaders formulate policy reform. We are the former faculty of Purdue’s Department of Agricultural Economics.
