Abstract

There is uncertainty in the minds of many people as to who pays for the AAA corn-hog program. The question is not who pays the costs of administration; that is a comparatively unimportant matter. The question, or rather, series of questions, is, who actually pays the hog processing tax of $2.25 per 100 pounds—the packer, the producer, or the consumer! And will a reduction in corn and hog production mean more total income for the corn-hog farmer, or less? If it will mean more income, from whom will the increased income be taken— from the packer and other distributors, or from the consumers? Or will it perhaps be taken from no one, but from a general increased production all-round resulting from the partial restoration of agriculture’s purchasing power?
