This publication should be useful to farmers and others who want to review the road that agricultural price policy in the United States has traveled in the past and to appraise the effect of such policies. It will also be useful to a person planning and taking part in discussions of farm price policy and programs at meetings of farmers and others interested in American agriculture. In a democracy, farmers and agricultural leaders may expect to be called upon more and more to express their views concerning matters of agricultural policy and national farm programs. The discussion is divided into two parts. The first half describes the major farm price programs of the past generation. The second part presents information on the results of these programs. On the final page there is a list of selected publications containing more detailed information on farm price programs.
