Financing Matters


  • Malcolm, Bill


Farms systems are open to financial systems. Financing matters. Analysis of questions about management of farms is a multi-dimensional task; focusing on economic efficiency only partly does the job. A financial system channeling funds efficiently from the non-farm sector to the farm sector, doing so in many and varied ways that meet the specific and different requirements of farm businesses is the key to a farm sector that is liquid and, as a consequence, makes it possible for farmers to use resources efficiently and to grow their wealth.
