We have some new staff members on the hallway and we want to briefly introduce them over the next few weeks.

Spies 2014The four Agricultural Economists have been at the NWU for a while, but in 2016 they officially joined the School of Economics. The second one that gets an introduction is Dr. David Spies.

Dr Spies’ interests lie in the fields of production economics, value chain analysis, marketing and trade. Through his work, he has made an important contribution to the South African red meat industry, both in the commercial as well as the informal sectors. Future research work that Dr Spies is planning will include the improvement of agricultural productivity in the informal sector.
