TL;DR: In this article , the seasonality of agricultural production has been analyzed to determine the possible impact of seasonality on the prices of three main agricultural products: wheat, maize and sunflower.
Abstract: "This paper aims to determine the possible impact of the seasonality of agricultural production on the prices of these products. Three main products were analysed, the majority of which are wheat, maize and sunflower production. With the help of national databases, product prices were analysed quantitatively and qualitatively, as well as statistically, over the last 5 years by calendar month. A series of researches have been carried out on the data, such as: analysing the dynamics of both annual and monthly prices, as well as determining the correlations between the price level for these products and the calendar month to which these prices refer. Following this analysis, the third-degree polynomial regression equations were determined, showing that product prices follow a sinuous trend, with high prices in the first part of the year, when supply is running out, then, during the harvesting period, there is a drop in price, given the sudden increase in supply on the market, and in the last months of the calendar year, the highest prices are recorded, given the additional cost of storing production following the harvesting campaign.

TL;DR: In this article , the authors focus on analyzing energy prices subsidies distribution in the MENA region among its seven components, according to the products that benefit from subsidized prices, and by per capita.
Abstract: This paper focuses on analyzing energy prices subsidies distribution in the MENA region among its seven components, according to the products that benefit from subsidized prices, and by per capita. As a nominal average of the years 2013, 2015, and 2017, both Iran and KSA had the higher nominal pre-tax subsidy averages estimated to $52.11 and $45.54 billion respectively, and also had higher post-tax subsidy averages estimated to $118.55 and $114.81 respectively. Global warming and local air pollution were the most important components after the pre-tax subsidies component in all MENA region countries. The “Congestion” component came after the level of the two environmental components averages in oil-exporting countries, while the “accidents” component in almost all the oil-importing countries came after the level of the two environmental components averages. By products, petroleum products were the main products that benefited from energy prices subsidies in almost all MENA countries. The reform process must take into account the specifics of each country with regard to the details of energy subsidies at its level, as energy subsidies vary from one country to another, whether in terms of its value, the weight of its components, and the subsidy share of each energy products.

TL;DR: In this paper , the authors identify the evolution regarding farms for each Member State of the European Union and signal the risks related to the states that are below the European average regarding the analysed indicators.
Abstract: Both the European Green Deal and Sustainable Development Goal 2 - Zero Hunger, highlight the importance of sustainable food systems as a key element for sustainable economic growth, a healthy population and the protection of the environment (European Commission, 2021). In this context, the analysis of quantitative indicators specific for the agricultural sector and the farm provides a realistic picture of the evolution of farms in Europe in 2005 vs. 2016. However, a qualitative analysis of farms is also needed, as sustainability focuses on quality. Given that it is essential to quantify both quantitatively and qualitatively the progress made in agriculture, with a focus on agricultural holdings, the objectives of this paper are: a) to identify the evolution regarding farms for each Member State of the European Union; and b) to signal the risks related to the states that are below the European average regarding the analysed indicators. This paper contributes to the studies carried out in this field through models for assessing the progress of farms in Europe and the unique set of indicators analysed. According to the study, the states that have made the most significant progress in terms of the number of farms, the output measured in Euro and the number of farms whose household consumes more than 50% of final production in 2016 are (1) Romania and (2) France.

TL;DR: The authors assess human understanding of rationality and irrationality from the derived view of economic theory and the layman's understanding, which is socially informed by behavioural disposition as dictated by events outside of human control.
Abstract: "The thrust of this theoretically informed paper is to assess human understanding of the paradoxical concepts of rationality and irrationality - more so from the derived view of economic theory and the layman’s understanding, which is socially informed by behavioural disposition as dictated by events outside of human control. The analytical outcome of the paper has shown that the (ir)rational state of the human being can truly be affirmed when our state of well-being is subjected to circumstances informed by uncertainties/abnormal conditions. While actors like the state (informed by its core agents in the fiscal and monetary sectors) can help support the market system, the human state of (ir)rationality as dictated by the existence of shocks/uncertainties is constantly tested to ensure the best situation is maximised when exposed to difficult situations. In conclusion, the paper has affirmed the need for a rethink of the theoretical proposition to accommodate continuous testing through practical engagement on how human beings can adjust their expectations when faced with uncertainties.
