Abstract

From my experience as a manager of economic research I believe that tertiary agricultural economics education has two major shortcomings. First, a large proportion of new graduates have poor writing skills. Their problems in this area revolve around ignorance of elementary grammar and lack of precision in written expression. The second problem that I perceive is that a significant proportion of economics graduates appear to lack any knowledge of economics. These individuals should have been failed from programs yet somehow have managed to get degrees.
