About this book

Advisor to President Kennedy, consultant for foreign governments, and spokesman for family farmers everywhere, Cochrane has been a leading expert on agriculture and its problems in the United States since the 1940s. In this book he analyses the propensity for American agriculture to produce too much and the inability of the social and economic system to make effective use of that abundance. He then offers his vision for American agriculture in the twenty-first century.
