FFF uncorks my piece on the Federal Farming Takeover

The Future of Freedom Foundation posted online my Freedom Daily article on FDR’s takeover of American agriculture. The piece is re-posted today at LewRockwell.com. Here’s an outtake:

The history of agricultural policy is a history of endless political finagling, of bureaucracies that always lagged behind the pace of events, of policymakers’ appalling misperceptions that repeatedly destroyed farmers’ independence, of politicians who refused to admit their limitations, and of farmers who refused to admit their responsibility. Government farm programs have been impervious both to failure and to change.
