Joint AAEA/CAES/EAAE Seminar "Social Networks, Social Media and the Economics of Food" (141st EAAE Seminar)
The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for presenting studies on the economics of food production and choice in a world in which social media and social networks have assumed a prominent role. The objective is to promote a better understanding of peer group influence on food consumption, and how social media and social networking affect food production and food choice decisions. Recognizing the role of social media in the broader food environment can help explain food choices that lead to unhealthy diets or the consumption of unsafe food. Understanding social media and social learning will help inform policies that use social concepts to control these, and other, food-related problems. The symposium invites an international scientific audience in the fields of agricultural and food economics, agribusiness, behavioral and health economics, marketing, and related disciplines.
