National agricultural systems are highly independent, and yet major policy options exist at the national level. To explore these options, therefore, it is necessary both to develop policy models for national economies and to link them together by trade and by capital transfers. For greater realism the models in this scheme of analysis are kept descriptive rather than normative. Models of some 20 countries (where the CMEA and EC countries with common agricultural policies are counted as single units), which together account for nearly 80% of such important agricultural attributes as area, production, population, exports and imports, are linked together to constitute the basic linked system.

Work on the Swedish model started in 1978 and was finished in 1984. In this report the authors describe what is specific to the Swedish case within the framework of model characteristics and policy problems.
