Abstract

Someone once told me that if you can solve a problem with money, it‘s not a problem. Using this logic, I would classify the human elements in food and agribusiness systems as a potential problem. Poor management of a highly complex system can doom the system to failure. This is not an engineering failure but rather a failure to account for the effect that user behavior has on a system.
