This is the instructor's manual for the book "Food and Agricultural Policy". The main text focuses on public policies and alternatives of the 20th century, as well as the emerging issues of the 21st century. It encompasses both the agricultural-producing and the food-consuming sectors and addresses resources issues and trade policy. The interrelationships of the national and international markets are also included, with an examination of the United States and world economic situation for food and agricultural policy. The book recognizes that the foundations of public policy rest on both the general theory of economics and the theory and practice of politics or political science. The foundation and evolution of price and income policies are explored and the work also encompasses emerging policy issues relevant to food distribution, food safety, the environment, and productivity and mobility of human resources, as well as agricultural and farm policies. Policy is considered in an alternatives framework, as the book analyzes the effects of price and income policy on producers, consumers, US Treasury and agri-business.
