  • Product Description

    US price supports for domestically grown sugar become controversial because of their varying impacts on sugar-exporting nations, domestic sugar refiners and, of course, domestic growers.

    Learning Objective:
    This case, told from the point of view of the Council of Economic Advisers, calls for an evaluation of the sugar price supports. It requires students to disentangle and quantify the complex resource allocation and income distribution consequences of the domestic sugar price support program.
