FARM DOLE. Ooh ooh, can I write the missing paragraph about international effects of American subsidies? Pick me, pick me!...Of course, markets always reward some and punish others. The real annoyance in recent farm prosperity is that it only seems to have increased the burden of American taxpayers. Even as farm net income rose by half between 2002 and 2004, the volume of direct government payments (read: subsidies) paid to farmers rose by nearly the same amount, from $11 billion to $15.7 … [Read more...]
