Drawing on the authors' background in education and policy development, Agricultural and Food Policy, Sixth Edition provides a comprehensive treatment of domestic and international policy setting, process, options and consequences. This book goes beyond the traditional discussion of farm programs, and gets readers thinking in broader terms, by considering the many forces—globalization, technology, food safety, environment—that influence policy change. Taking an unbiased approach, this edition includes more economic theory, a new chapter on government involvement, current policy issues, and a chapter devoted to the future of agricultural and food policy. Informs readers of the most recent policy issues, such as the Doha Round of WTO negotiations, food terrorism, and budget deficits, in an objective manner. Creates an understanding of how U.S. policy affects stakeholders in other countries. Shows the importance of current WTO negotiations to policy outcomes. Gives readers a deeper understanding of the conditions leading to government involvement, the constraints on government involvement, the role of economists and the limits of economics. Explains concepts using graphs and helps readers understand the underlying theory driving policy decisions. Examines the impact of constituency groups and encourages readers to consider the future of agriculture and food policy.  Those interested or involved in agricultural and food policy.

From the Publisher:

The issues in this book are treated in a current context intended to capture the interest of students. Solutions to agriculture problems are not prescribed. Rather, emphasis is placed on developing an understanding of the problems, policy alternatives, and their consequences. Economic principles are introduced throughout the book to develop an understanding of how the tools of analysis can be used to provide insight into the economic impact of particular policies.

From the Back Cover:

The fifth edition of Agricultural and Food Policy provides a timely and comprehensive treatment of current policy issues affecting the food and agriculture industry today. Although this new edition has been completely revised, it still adheres to the basic principles that made it a leader in its field. Recognizing that agricultural policy is broader than farm programs, this book still includes process, international, resource, and food policy components.

Agricultural and Food Policy, fifth edition includes five new chapters: Chapter 1: Forces of Policy Change, Chapter 2: Economic Foundations of Policy, Chapter 4: Geopolitical Center of Influence, Chapter 5: World Trade Organization, and Chapter 12: Future of Agriculture and Food Policy.

Featuring:

  • Timely analysis of current issues, even beyond the 2002 Farm Bill, which is useful in evaluating both present and future policy
  • Objectivity without advocacy of particular options, which makes readers think about what is best for them, farmers, taxpayers, and society
  • Boxed material that provides definitions of trade terms
