In this problem we have considered two government schemes: A price floor is established and the government purchases any excess output and The government buys all the farmers’ output at the floor price and resells at whatever price it can get. Which scheme will taxpayers prefer? Consider again the two schemes. Which scheme will the farmers prefer? Consider again the two schemes. Which scheme will corn buyers prefer?


  1. In this problem we have considered two government schemes:
    1. A price floor is established and the government purchases any excess output and
    2. The government buys all the farmers’ output at the floor price and resells at whatever price it can get. Which scheme will taxpayers prefer?
  2. Consider again the two schemes. Which scheme will the farmers prefer?
  3. Consider again the two schemes. Which scheme will corn buyers prefer?
 
Table 4-5 below contains information about the corn market. An agricultural price floor is a price that the government guarantees
farmers will receive for a particular crop. Suppose the federal government sets a price floor for corn at $12 per bushel.
