Summary and Info
Annotation. The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is at an impasse. While it is said that existing policies are not tenable, all recent reform plans have been condemned as unacceptable. However, a 2bond scheme3, as part of reform that pays more attention to societys aspirations for the environment and rural development, offers a way forward. This book demystifies the bond scheme proposal and explores concerns expressed by farmers and policy makers. Written by economists, a political scientist and a practising politician, it offers rare insights into EU farm policy.
