U.S. Food Aid: It’s Not Your Parents’ Program Any More!

Christopher Barrett ()

Journal of Agribusiness, 2006, vol. 24, issue 1, 16

Abstract: Much has changed in the 50 years since modern food aid began with the enactment of U.S. Public Law 480 in 1954. Yet contemporary policy debates often become derailed by failures to appreciate the significant changes that have already occurred. This paper identifies the most important of these changes and explains how these set the stage for further desirable changes to U.S. food aid programs.
