Abstract

Economic development and growth of population in Asia have caused an increase in the demand for food. On the other hand, disappearing the cultivation area and global warming have caused a decrease in the supply for food. In 1995, China imported cereals from U. S. A for the first time.To understand the future of Asia, it is required to make a model which concerns about reciprocal action among demand for food, supply for food, environment, economic development. This study proposes a model based on ecology and economics.For example, this study includes a model based on income producing processes. Income is obtained from a calculation involving capital and labor using the Cobb-Douglas function. These data for income is then used to calculate the demand for food.
