Summary
"At the intersection of the growing national conversation about our food system and the long-running debate about our government's role in society is the complex farm bill. American farm policy, built on a political coalition of related interests with competing and conflicting demands,has proven incredibly resilient despite development and growth. In The Fault Lines of Farm Policy Jonathan Coppess analyzes the legislative and political history of the farm bill, including the evolution of congressional politics for farm policy.Disputes among the South, the Great Plains, and the Midwest over farm policy form the primordial fault line that has defined the debate throughout farm policy's history.Because these regions formed the original farm coalition and have played the predominant roles throughout, this study concentrates on the three major commodities produced in these regions:corn, cotton, and wheat. Coppess examines policy development by the political and Congressional interests representing these commodities, including basic drivers such as coalition building,external and internalpressures on the coalition andits fault lines,and the impact of commodityprices. This exploration of the political fault lines provides perspectives for future policy discussions and more effective policy outcomes."--
