The Search for Parity
Abstract:Since World War I, the planning environment of farming in the United States has changed beyond recognition, as new laws set up agencies and programs designed to improve the farmers' lot and develop a sound agricultural industry. If we are serious about improving private incentives to forestry, farm experience suggests that we should try to correct imperfections in such basic institutions as markets, ownership, credit and information.
