IMPACTS OF PRICE STABILIZATION POLICY ON FARM STRUCTURE

William Lin and Ann Ingerson

No 283693, 1978 Annual Meeting, August 6-9, Blacksburg, Virginia from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Price stabilization tends to redistribute farms from the h~gher sales classes to lower sales classes, increase average farm size, and reduce the market concentration. Even though large farmers individually receive proportionally more of government payments under the stabilization program, price stabilization appears to be an action program worth considering for helping small farmers.
