, : A model of problem definition: an application to Swedish farmers' adaptation to deregulation of agriculture and EU-membership. Onderzoekverslag Landbouw Economisch Instituut ( 143): 218-230

Decision making activities can be grouped into phases. A model of one sub-function (problem definition), is discussed and tested. A general model of problem definition as a part of unique decision making (in contrast to repetitive) is used to model Swedish farmers' search, analysis and evaluation of ideas of actions that may solve the problem of adaptation to deregulation of agriculture and EU-membership.
