Malone:Schaefer
MSU Department of Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics professors Trey Malone and Aleks Schaefer are hosting an online conversation to discuss the effect the coronavirus global pandemic is having on our food supply chain and the economy.

Schaefer and Malone are uniquely positioned to discuss the uncertainties the coronavirus global pandemic is causing for agriculture, our global food supply chain and the economy.

Schaefer has a law degree with an emphasis on international trade and a doctorate, where his dissertation focused on disease transmission and antimicrobial resistance.

Malone’s research has focused on the importance of psychology in the way people make decisions in the agricultural value chain – both of which are areas of importance in this increasingly irrational time.
