Anuvedika Murti Discussion Questions 1) What are the distinguishing characteristics of the economic systems labeled subsistence, commercial and planned? Are they mutually exclusive, or can they coexist within a single political unit? Give an example of each Subsistence farming , form of farming in which nearly all of the crops or livestock raised are used to maintain the farmer and the farmer’s family, leaving little, if any, surplus for sale or trade” (Curly,2019). “ Commercial farming occurs when a farm is set up for the sole purpose of producing crops and farm animals for sale, with the sole intention of making a profit (Wills,2019). Planned is when goods and services are disposed through government agencies. Such systems are not mutually exclusives and can coexist within a single political unit. Examples of subsistence farming are growing fruits and vegetables. Examples of commercial farming are advertising cotton, and planned farming would be government controlling prices. 2) How is intensive subsistence agriculture distinguished from extensive subsistence cropping? Why, in your opinion, have such different land use forms developed in separate areas of the warm, moist tropics?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
