Abstract: New initiatives are needed in order to move the GATT negotiations forward. A Production Entitlements Guarantees (PEG) program would limit the quantity of production of individual farmers eligible to receive support payments. The payments would be tied to production. But the quantity of production eligible for support at the farm level would be limited and all other forms of direct or indirect income support to farmers would be dropped.
