PUBLIC PREFERENCES, PRESSURE GROUPS, AND PUBLIC POLICY REGARDING MULTIFUNCTIONALITY IN AGRICULTURE: COMPATIBILITY AND CONFLICT

We compare the current emphasis of Californian state policies to social preferences, elicited through focus groups. We demonstrate that program objectives and public priorities diverge in significant ways, and we develop a pressure group political economy model that explains such differences.
