Farm incomes, wealth and agricultural policy: filling the CAP's core information gap.

Book cover for Farm incomes, wealth and agricultural policy: filling the CAP's core information gap.


The main thesis of this book is that, within the EU's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), incomes are not, and never have been, assessed in a way that is appropriate to the fundamental needs of policy. This also applies in the UK and most other industrialized countries. Furthermore, with a few national exceptions, the necessary information is not available by which a policy aimed directly at enabling the agricultural population to enjoy a fair standard of living could be designed and monitored. Wealth, as it relates to the economic status of farmers and their families, is almost totally ignored. The book has 7 chapters and a subject index.
