Discussion Questions

  1. Consider food safety in Canada. While some would say it’s safe, others might not. Discuss whether you think we have an information asymmetry case, and whether we need safer food. Consider trade-offs regarding costs and increased safety.
  2. Express your thoughts on externalities related to chemical use in agriculture (could be for fertilizer or even antibiotics using in animal production).
  3. How could “market failure” affect you as an agriculture producer?
