An analysis of the decision-making process in an agricultural enterprise: a learning curve between logic, causality and creativity

An analysis of the decision-making process in an agricultural enterprise: a learning curve between logic, causality and creativity

This paper presents a method of analysing decision-making processes in agriculture, confronting as it does so approaches developed by so-called 'alternative' economists such as Miele and Rovai. The present study consciously offends against their arguments by offering a single case study and refraining from seeking to place it in a wider comparative framework.
