UNITED STATES AGRICULTURAL TRADE: WHERE ARE THE GAINS?

This paper discusses the interface between the U.S. agricultural policy and the economic gains from exports. The theory shows that the net gains from trade after government subsidies are accounted for can be small or nonexistent. Some empirical evidence is discussed to support this claim. Policy options are presented to enhance gains from trade from U.S. exports.
