Notes
  • Agricultural support costs OECD countries billions of dollars per year in lost income. It is frequently argued, however, that this is not waste, but is rather a fair price to pay for a number of "non-economic" objectives such as thriving rural communities and increased national security. This paper analyses these objectives and their relationship with agricultural policy. It draws three conclusions: first, the so-called non-economic objectives (SNOs) are, in fact, economic; second, being economic they are amenable to quantification and economic analysis; and, third, present forms of agricultural support may be inefficient means to achieve these objectives ... Le soutien à l'agriculture coûte chaque année aux pays de l'OCDE des milliards de dollars. Toutefois, on soutient fréquemment que cela n'est pas un gaspillage mais plutôt le juste prix à payer pour un certain nombre d'objectifs "non économiques”, notamment la prospérité des communautés rurales et le renforcement de la sécurité nationale. Le présent document analyse ces objectifs et leurs liens avec la politique agricole. Il en ressort trois conclusions, premièrement, les objectifs dits "non économiques " sont, en réalité, économiques, deuxièmement, étant économiques, ils peuvent faire l'objet d'une évaluation quantitative et d'une analyse économique, troisièmement, les formes actuelles de soutien à l'agriculture sont peut-être des moyens inefficaces de réaliser ces objectifs.
