This week’s explanation of our country’s Farm Bill touches on how our diet, welfare programs, and transportation are all directly effected by government administration. At first glance, one may notice that these characteristics make up a majority of this nation’s interests. Food for example, is more than just a life necessity, it’s also a social lubricant, thriving business, and leverage of power. With political involvement, regulation for food safety, subsidies, and stamps are all allocated. It is quite beneficial to have this type of government involvement with something so important to the American life. As explained in the lecture, the Farm Bill changes every five years. This means that the policies and support are meant to be tailored to the needs of the time, including shortages, warm and new technologies.
