Guest: Chris Edwards


In this episode, Bob is joined by Chris Edwards from the Cato Institute to cover farm subsidies and agricultural price supports. This is a huge federal budget item and ripe for total elimination. It is important economically but difficult politically. Let’s get rid of ethanol and sugar subsidies and all wealth transfers from lower income food buyers to middle and upper income farmers; from city dwellers and suburbanites to what is left of American Gothic. Bring back free market pricing.
