That's the title of a new report put out by the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology. Nicole Widmar and I helped contribute to the section on economics.
A lot is covered in a mere 40 pages. The main section heads include:

It’s an honor to join such a prestigious group of scientists in pulling together this multidisciplinary report.
