I have argued with Robert Paarlberg and Terry Roe (1999) that there are four alternative strategies available to advocates of policy reform in agriculture. 1, farm program interventions can either be dismantled slowly or quickly, either with or without compensation. A slow, compensated transformation of programs is a cash out. A quick, compensated termination is a buyout. A slow, uncompensated diminution is a squeeze out, while a quick, uncompensated elimination is a cutout. 1 Cash Out A cash out is only a partial approach to reform, since it leaves market intervention policies in place for some time.
Without high prices, in fact, this approach likely never would have been proposed in the first place. Full decoupling of support payments from market prices and farmers' planting decisions had not been considered seriously by Congress when it rewrote farm policy in 1990, and it remained essentially off the table when the 1995 farmbill debate began. New policy ideas were being generated just before the 1995 debate, but the new concept attracting the greatest attention was the revenue assurance idea pushed by a coalition of Iowa com growers.
3 Alternative Explanations for FAIR Act Outcomes Are there convincing explanations for the FAIR Act outcomes other than the change in party control of Congress in 1994 and unexpected high-market prices the following year? S. farm policy change in 1995-96, since the terms of the international agreement were carefully written to require no supportlevel reductions beyond those already undertaken in the 1985 and 1990 farm bills. S. farm policy was also built into the implementing legislation 26 Orden negotiations in late 1994 between the congressional fann lobby and the Clinton administration.
