Economic conditions of pricing and income policy in agriculture


The article considers the problem, very important in existing conditions, of a choice of a formula of agricultural policy towards private farming. In the theory as well as in practice two standpoints collide. The proponents of the first declare for a so-called pro-income conception of policy towards farmers. Its essence lies in creating favourable income conditions for farmes by means of an appropriate agricultural pricing policy. An opposite tendency is represented by those economists who declare for financial restrictions towards farmers according to the principle of a so-called hard-to-get money-policy. They argue against the pro-income agricultural policy raising the arguments that such a policy is socially expensive, that it is a source of inflation in the whole economy, it weakens the pro-efficiency motivation, it leads to retaining food products subsidies and hinders desirable changes in the area structure of farms. Without denying the unquestionable merits of the hard-to-get money policy, one must emphasize that such a policy may not be implemented selectively, i.e. only in some sectors of production. It should be carried out consistently in the whole economy. Selective implementation of the hard-to-get money policy in agriculture may result in the farmers' undertaking protective measures, with the possible effect of decreased material outlays on production and, in consequence, a decreased level of production. The practice shows that fovourable tendencies in agricultural production are generated only by stabile and consistent agricultural policy combining skillfully material profits for farmers with the aims of the whole economy
