EDIT
Carlo Petrini: Give Value To Food-5
AIRED:
Is U.S. agricultural policy fundamentally flawed? Since the Nixon administration, when then Secretary of Agriculture, Earl Butz, led the drive to invigorate agriculture production by encouraging farmers to become bigger, and to maximize production even as commodity prices would likely fall over time; sales quantity, and the opening of foreign markets to U.S. farmers were seen as a means to offset shrinking profit margins. Recognizing clearly the political potency of agriculture policy to control, or destabilize other countries, rising food prices at home could also produce similar, but (obviously) undesirable, destabilizing effects. Every administration since Nixon has had at its national core the objective of increasing U.S. agriculture productivity, and efficiency---to keep our own food prices low.moreless
