Volume 2 of the E-Book Series “Research Topics in Agricultural and Applied Economics,” edited by Professor Anthony Rezitis provides a number of papers that are excellent examples of advanced empirical work applied to relevant problems. Readers, in particular applied economists, will find the work presented useful for its illustration of how to apply advanced techniques such as Almost Ideal Demand Systems and conjoint analysis to real world problems.

The results of the analyses presented also will prove useful to those in the applied world of agricultural economics. The topics addressed are quite relevant ranging from modeling trade in virgin olive oil to valuing attributes of wine. This collection provides a valuable contribution to the continuation of applied economics in providing insight to relevant problems.
