  The economic theory of the firm has not made much headway in the more than seven decades since Coase's article was published (and four decades since Williamson's rediscovery).

The author defines the farm household as an economic entity which is a complex of the farm firm, the labourer's household and the consumer's household, and whose behavioural principle is utility maximization. The main purpose of the book is to construct a theoretical model of the decision-making behaviour of the farm household. The editors contribute an introductory chapter and a final summing up of the intermediate contributions. The other contributions are in three main sections.

This book covers recent advances both in family economics and in modelling the relationship between the farm-household and the farm-firm.

Both theoretical and empirical aspects of Agricultural Household Modelling and Family Economics are also discussed, providing a timely contribution to research in this Edition: 1.

Covers recent advances both in family economics and in modelling the relationship between the farm-household and farm-firm. The book describes both the theoretical and empirical aspects of agricultural household modelling and family economics.

This book provides an in-depth description of different methodologies and techniques currently used in farm-level modelling. While giving an overview of the theoretical grounding behind the models, an applied approach is also used. Case studies range from the application of modelling to policy reforms and the subsequent impacts on rural.

Theoretical conditions for short term profit maximization and the fixed effect specification are not rejected by the data. The book uncovers vast inequalities, whether between two regions of one country, between rural and urban areas, or within cities themselves.

The authors find little evidence to suggest that these inequalities will automatically diminish as countries develop: empirical and qualitative analysis suggests that spatial divides are mainly a function.
