This study provides an economic analysis of the policies that affect agriculture and agribusiness in both Canada and the US.;The authors emphasize the role of farmers and agribusiness in the formation of policy, exploring the farm problem from both economic and historical perspectives. The various institutions that influence the development and implementation of policy are also discussed and compared. Because of the importance of international trade to North American agriculture, one chapter is devoted to a discussion of trade models. The book then goes on to analyze specific problems, such as price and income stabilization, science policy, environmental policy, and food quality and safety. The role of vertical markets in agriculture is emphasized throughout. The authors combine the traditional welfare economics framework with the new institutional economics and rent-seeking behaviour to explain the development of agricultural policy.
