Abstract:

"Farm Incomes: Myths and Reality examines current trends in farm incomes policy and the value of EU transfers to Irish farmers and the Irish economy. It challenges a number of myths about Irish farming and farm incomes. It shows that Irish agriculture makes a negligible contribution to Irish GNP in the absence of EU support. Farming is profitable only because of the transfers it receives as a result of public policy. The contribution made by Irish consumers and taxpayers to farm incomes is increasing and now amounts to over [pound]900m annually - or half the income from farming. The cost to Irish consumers alone is equivalent to a VAT of 20 per cent on food." "This pamphlet contends that farm household incomes are now at least as high as non-farm incomes and that there is no longer an income justification for this continued support to farming. It argues that radical reform of EU policy is necessary to see farmers producing at world prices while maintaining budget transfers for agri-environmental and rural development purposes."--BOOK JACKET.
