This article explores farmer's decisions regarding the expansion of organic farming through intensive input use and the degree of in-house organic fertilizer production. Using a theoretical synthesis of two strands of the scholarly literature, namely pro-environmental norms and the goal-framing theory, the contribution of this article to the curren...
This article develops a theoretical model that explores firms' abatement choices. The main results are: First, in a market comprised of a not sufficiently large number of heterogeneous firms always there exists a subset of firms that are willing to undertake abatement activities, if their marginal altruistic cost of emissions is positive. Second, a...
It is a central theme in the scholarly literature that incentives promote efforts and serve policy goals. Yet, incentive schemes may sometimes backfire due to complex interplay between motives with moral commitments and personal perceptions. In such a setting, some novel results were obtained.

Some novel re...
Recently, I became aware of the social network analysis (SNA). In my mind, the way that SNA works seems quite close to fuzzy cognitive maps (FCM). So, I would appreciate aby feedback on the following:
1) Which are the main differences between SNA and FCM?

3) Is there any up to date (time is subjective) literature on these topics that relates to environmental/agricultural policy?
Thanks in advance!!!
