Minimum Income Policy: Elements and Effects of an Alternative Instrument of Farm Policy of the European Community

Price support for farm products through import restrictions still represents the main instrument for raising farm sector incomes within the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Community (EC). The objective of this paper is first to analyze the effects of the traditional price policy of the CAP. Next, an alternative type of farm income policy will be discussed which seems to be more consistent with the general principles of income policy outside agriculture, and which should be able to avoid, or at least reduce, most of the negative effects of the present price policy of the EC.
