A theoretical framework for analyzing social costs of the tobacco program

, : A theoretical framework for analyzing social costs of the tobacco program. Southern journal of agricultural economics 11(2): 103-106

Government control of tobacco production through output restrictions and price supports began with the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933. Critics charge that tobacco production policies of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare are inconsistent or even in direct opposition. These issues present a policy dilemma. A theoretical framework is devised for analyzing social costs of the tobacco program and application of the framework to current policy issues is examined.
