Consumption takes place in settings or environments which have both direct and indirect effects on its dynamic path. Direct effects of environments on activities in consuming can occur through constraints that environments impose. Environment can also have indirect effects on consumption through enduring modification of internalized constructs which enter heuristics for decisions on activities. The importance of environments to consumption is increased by the definitional dependence of status on the judgements of others. This study examines microprocessing in consumer activities for status as it interacts with structure in the environments of these activities. The importance of environments in status activities provides the basis for a seperate, but related inquiry into observed differences in the form they take across societies. Conjecture on the consequences of differences in the structure of environments for consumption that typify a society is studied in the narrative statements by members of comparison societies and in the content of print advertising in these societies. Evolutionary processes which could establish observed differences in structure across societies are also considered in both their systematic and random components. I review models of random drift and stochastic resonance as candidate forms for generating observed structure in environments. Directions for the subsequent study of status through consumption are discussed.P Introduction: Status Through Consumption; Knowledge Use in Nonwork Activities for Status; Interactions of Consumer Microprocessing and Structured Environments: Activity Feedback and the Stability of Structure; Awards and Honors Systems in Structured Environments: Cross Societal Comparisons of Narrative Statements on Consuming for Status; Comparative Analyses of Consumption Appeals in the Print Advertising of the USA and France, 1955-1991 Random Process in the Generation of Structured Environments; Overview and directions for Study of Status Through Consumption.

Personal consumption accounts for two thirds of GDP, yet recent economic events have emphasised our limited ability to translate consumption patterns into policy. Steven Silver analyses this understudied area, exploring the network memberships that emerge from our everyday lives, and the consumption patterns these create.

Research and development in agriculture is a very relevant topic in today’s society, especially given the evolution of land ownership structures and resources exploitation. These transformations have paved the way for new approaches in the allocation and management of agricultural systems. Agricultural Management Strategies in a Changing Economy brings together emergent research and best practices in the area of agricultural management, policy, and structures. Highlighting theoretical concepts and empirical research, this book will be an all-encompassing reference source for professionals, researchers, academicians, practitioners, and students in the field of agricultural economics and sustainable development, as well as in related disciplines.

While consumers are recognized as valuing market goods and services for the activities they can construct from them in the frameworks of several disciplines, consequences of the characteristics of goods and services they use in these activities have not been well studied. In this book, knowledge-yielding and conventional goods and services are contrasted as factors in the construction of activities that consumers engage in when they are not in the workplace. Consumers are seen as deciding on non-work activities and the inputs to these activities according to their objectives, and the values and accumulated skills they hold. It is suggested that knowledge content in these activities can be efficient for consumer objectives and also have important externalities through its effect on productivity at work and economic growth. The exposition seeks to elaborate these points and contribute to multi-disciplinary dialogue on consumption.

A Theory Of Interregional Dynamics

This book is concerned with dynamic relations between interregional division of labor, division of consumption and determination of prices structure within a perfectly competitive framework in spatial economy. Our analytical framework examines the issues related to interregional dynamics raised in the traditional regional economic theories as well as to provide insights into the issues related to interdependence between knowledge creation and utilization and spatial economies examined by the new international trade theory and new regional economic theory. The comparative advantage of our theory is that in providing rich insights into complex of regional evolution it uses only a few concepts and simplified functional forms and accepts a few assumptions about behavior of consumers, producers and institutional structures over space.

This book analyzes environmental protection and resource use in a comprehensive framework where not only economic but also natural scientific aspects are taken into consideration. The special features of the book are (i) that the authors utilize a natural scientific variable, entropy, to characterize the economic system and the environment, (ii) that environmental protection and resource use are analyzed in combination, and (iii) that a replacement of techniques over time is analyzed. The authors investigate the use of the environment both as a supplier of resources and as a recipient of pollutants with the help of thermodynamic relationships. The book therefore provides a new set of tools for environmentalists and economists.

This book is a systematic and comprehensive presentation of the theory and practice of polymer barrier films. Starting from a presentation of how gases and liquid solutes permeate films, the book explains the performance limits of polymer barriers under multiple packaging conditions. This information is then used to illustrate how engineers can predict properties and performance for single and multilayer barriers for a wide variety of packaging applications.
