Global research projects in recent years have recognised the fundamental nature of food policy in the changing pattern of international relations. Some projects have focussed on this area of investigation, others like the study described in this paper have worked from the premise that food problems are central to the so-called global problematique. This in seeking debate on the content of work-in-progress to develop a World-Australia economic model, we could not improve on starting this process with the Australian Agricultural Economics Society. Accordingly, we have attempted to draw out the agricultural content of our work to extend an existing regional model of the world economic system. Completed agriculture-based case studies using the existing model are described to provide a context for proposed issue-based case studies dealing with food and energy problems relative to resource depletion constraints and considerations of environmental feasibility in Australia.
