A Poor Harvest: The Clash of Policies and Interests in the Grain Trade

By Richard Gilmore
Longman, 1982
303 pp. $25.00
Purchase

Almost all aspects of international agriculture come into this book in one way or another. The author's main concern, however, is with the big multinational companies that dominate the international grain trade. That they limit the ability of the U.S. government to control the situation is clear enough; by stressing their ability to profit from every situation, he plays down the usefulness of their integrating the world market. He has a strong case for better information on American exports but a much more dubious one for an export tax on grain.
