Random Thoughts On Some Problems Of Professional Communication


Author Info

  • Burns, E.O.
Registered author(s):


    Within the profession of agricultural economics are found academics, government economists, farm organization economists, and others. Although the profession is based on general acceptance of principles and judgements, the outlook and activities of an individual are conditioned by his occupational status. Employment affiliations give rise to certain restraints and strains to communication between functional groups. The paper examines this problem, and presents a case for better understanding between the major institutional groups.
