The public policy issues of economic development, trade, nutrition, food safety, the environment, maintaining limited natural resources, protecting plant and animal diversity, intellectual property, genetics, and social and economic priorities will all be analyzed and diagnosed in case study format. Positioning public agencies and private firms within the developed and developing economies will be an integral part of the course.
