Is there a consensus among Hungarian agricultural economists?
This article investigates the degree of consensus among Hungarian agricultural economists on specific propositions on the basis of a survey using a consensus index. In comparison with previous studies of agricultural economists this study finds much more diversity among them. In contrast to earlier studies, we found no evidence that there was a difference in views between positive and normative propositions. The results suggest that personal characteristics of agricultural economists, such as age, occupation and educational background may have an influence on the pattern of responses. We also found some support for the role of positive and normative influences when it comes to policy judgement.
