EFFECTS OF EMPHASIZING DECOUPLED VERSUS COUPLED POLICY TOOLS IN THE 2002 FARM BILL

The 1996 and 2002 farm bills moved government support toward decoupled tools rather than support coupled to production and/or prices. This paper analyzes whether areas with more production risk would prefer decoupled or coupled support. The results indicate areas with more yield risk would prefer decoupled payments and vice versa.
