The federal government will soon craft a new Farm Bill that will give billions of dollars to the largest, most profitable farms in the nation. This leads us to ask…
This Saturday at 9am Pacific, the Food Chain Radio show with Michael Olson hosts Iowa State University Economics Professor Bruce Babcock and Farm Bill Hackathon Hostess Beth Hoffman for a conversation about the 2012 Farm Bill.
Topics include why the government crafts a new Farm Bill every five years; how Farm Bills are used to govern the nation’s agriculture; and whether Farm Bills have become Reverse Robin Hoods, in which government takes from poor tax payers and gives to wealthy farmers.
