Today, Carolyn Dimitri, a professor and researcher at New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development, published new research in Renewable Agriculture and Food Systems assessing and examining the evolution of US agriculture and policy into the 21st century. This new research can be viewed online here:

Dimitri is an applied economist who studies food systems and food policy, focusing on how food moves from the farm to the consumer. A common thread throughout her research is the role of governmental and private institutions in facilitating transactions between buyers and sellers, including how food labels transmit unobservable information about product quality to buyers and how policies support farmer income and consumer health.
