James L. Seale, Jr., is a professor in the Food and Resource Economics Department at the University of Florida. Much of his research falls under the broad categories of international economics and applied econometrics. Within these categories, he has focused his research efforts in three related areas: international consumption patterns for foods and other consumption goods in low-, middle-, and high income countries; international trade and development policy; and import demand analyses, particularly for specialty crops. His current research in China emphasizes urban food consumption in Chinese cities. He has studied agricultural supply response in China and India, stochastic production analysis in Egypt, and sugar and ethanol policy in Brazil. Most recently, he has embarked on research developing the theoretical foundations of empirical differential input and output allocation models that he has applied to land allocation for major crops in the United States, Russia, and China.
