Abstract:
The writer has been, since 1928, in charge of the Economics Department of the Edinburgh and East of Scotland College of Agriculture which serves twelve Eastern and south Eastern Counties of Scotland. Large scale farming enterprises are typical of the area. Agricultural economists, like other investigators, may be expected to give their researches a direction, and their results an interpretation, suggested by the environment in which they work. In areas of small farms, for example, studies tend to bear upon the standard of life of farm people and matters concerning this, such as the incidence of taxation or the extent of mortgage indebtedness. It is natural, perhaps, that an economist whose work has lain in a district characterised agriculturally by comparatively large farms should have been concerned with profits.
