Title: THE CHANGING POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT FOR TOBACCO -- IMPLICATIONS FOR SOUTHERN TOBACCO FARMERS, RURAL ECONOMIES, TAXPAYERS, AND CONSUMERS: DISCUSSION
Authors: Sutton, Russell W.
Keywords: price-support program
tobacco industry
tobacco program
Issue Date: 1999-08
Abstract: This paper is a discussion of the Brown, Snell, and Tiller article. The economic accuracy, conciseness, and organization is noteworthy with the major strength being the analysis of the tobacco system with the absence of a Federal program. The base paper discusses economic consequences of the U.S. tobacco program, within-industry structural differences, and recent/potential future changes such as the buy-out, industry uncertainty, and the possibility of program elimination.
