“Yes, as a means of temporary stabilization of wider market swings. There is no truly free market as government policy can often affect markets for years. Even small scale farming can be capitol intensive, and farming is a business with a much longer commitment timeline than most. Also there should be more, quicker and smaller levels assistance in times of need, pulling money away from large programmed entity support, especially for multiple entities. The goals of government intrusion should be to level the market, due to it's own policies or not, to provide for safe, dependable and inexpensive food and fiber. Those should be the effects of the policies for today, and give birth to and guide the new farmers of the future.”
