Farm economics remains a major concern for policymakers as it has been in the past. On the other hand, the farms in America constituted one of its main levers of power besides the military. Policies must encourage innovation in one sense, yet be ready to lend support just in the event of regional weather disasters or national economics trends adverse to agriculture. This new book presents a comprehensive picture of these current issues. Contents: Preface; Farm Economic Relief: Issues and Options for Congress; US Farm Income: Recent National and Regional Changes and the Federal Response; Farm and Food Support under USDA's Section 32 Program; Farm Labour Shortages and Immigration Policy; Farm Support Programs and World Trade Commitments; Farm Disaster Assistance; Federal Farm Promotion ('Check-Off') Programs; Farm 'Counter-Cyclical Assistance'; Farm Program Spending: What's Permitted under the Uruguay Round Agreements; Index.
