About this book

The main objective of this book is to analyse why, when and how the MacSharry reforms were enacted. The author adopts an interdisciplinary approach, examining alternatives to the standard neo-classical agricultural economics analyses. The approach adopted considers the public choice framework and recognises that agricultural policy is made by governments and therefore affected by economic and political pressures.


An economic analysis of the CAP; the history of CAP reform; the pressures for the MacSharry reforms; the public choice paradigm of decision-making systems; the policy process of the MacSharry reforms; the effects of the MacSharry reforms; interpretations of the MacSharry reforms.
