Bailey Norwood               Bailey Norwood grew up in the Low Country of South Carolina breaking horses, losing money by entering roping and bareback riding rodeo events, working on farms, hunting, fishing, and all the normal South Carolina activities.  His interest in agriculture and the persistence of his parents led him to enroll at Clemson University where he majored in agricultural economics.  Inspired by brilliant and enthusiastic teachers, Bailey decided that he too wanted to become a professor of agricultural economics.             The pursuit of this dream saw him through Kansas State University where he received a Masters’ Degree in Agricultural Economics, and North Carolina State University where he earned a Ph.D. in Economics.  Professor Norwood is now an assistant professor at Oklahoma State University, where he enjoys teaching and advising a large number of agricultural economics students.  Teaching is his number one passion, and Dr. Norwood is known for hosting creative and entertaining lectures.  His unique and effective teaching style has earned him two national teaching awards in only four years of teaching.             While educating students is Professor Norwood’s first priority, his resume shows an outstanding track record in research as well.  Publishing over 17 articles in scientific journals, Dr. Norwood has also received the Outstanding Journal Article one of the profession’s highest rated journals.  Like teaching, Bailey has demonstrated a proficiency at researching diverse subjects.  His research articles encompass agricultural production, statistical methodology, environmental economics, agricultural policy, and product marketing.             Professor Norwood has thoroughly enjoyed writing this textbook, and wishes the students the best of luck in their studies and career!   Jayson Lusk               Jayson Lusk is Professor and Willard Sparks Endowed Chair in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Oklahoma State University.  Prior to arriving at Oklahoma State, Lusk was an assistant professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Mississippi State University and an associate professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University.
