Mandatory Process, Matthew J.B. Lawrence 2015 Harvard University

Mandatory Process, Matthew J.B. Lawrence

Indiana Law Journal

This Article suggests that people tend to undervalue their procedural rights—their proverbial “day in court”—until they are actually involved in a dispute. The Article argues that the inherent, outcome-independent value of participating in a dispute resolution process comes largely from its power to soothe a person’s grievance— their perception of unfairness and accompanying negative emotional reaction—win or lose. But a tendency to assume unchanging emotional states, known in behavioral economics as projection bias, can prevent people from anticipating that they might become aggrieved and from appreciating the grievance-soothing power of process. When this happens, people will ...

The Future Of The Conservation Reserve Program, Michael D. Duffy, Darnell B. Smith

Iowa Ag Review

The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), enacted in 1985, was the largest single land retirement program in history with current enrollment above 36 million acres. When initially passed in the 1985 Food Security Act, the CRP was intended, primarily, to provide an incentive to remove highly erodible land from production for 10 years. In subsequent years its use was expanded to include, among other objectives, producer income support and the reduction of surplus commodities by restricting production.

Iowa Ag Review

The 1996 FAPRI baseline results, a s ubset of which are discussed in this article, are the first to incorporate full plaming flexibility between major crops. Essentially. this represents a decoupled income support program, assumed to decline slightly over the projection period ( 1996-2005). Some of tbe more important U.S. policy provisions ~tsed as a basis for this baseline came from the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform ( f'AIR) Act of 1996.

Iowa Ag Review

The Farm Bill passed by the House and Senate in late March and signed by President Clinton 0n April 4, 1996, contains many of the same provisions as the Agricultural Reconciliation Act of 1995 (ARA-95, evaluated in our last issue). The 1996 bill, the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform (FAIR) Act, also has some significant differences. Most notably, "permanent law" provisions for price support authotity and the Farmer Owned Reserve were only suspended, and were not eliminated. Soybean loan .rate provisions were changed, implying an approximate 34 cents/ bushel increase in the loan rate over the near term. Also, important ...

Stocks-To-Use Ratios And Grain Price Volatility, Steven L. Elmore, Darnell B. Smith 2015 Iowa State University

Stocks-To-Use Ratios And Grain Price Volatility, Steven L. Elmore, Darnell B. Smith

Iowa Ag Review

Speculation in the agriculture community early this year focused not only on a new farm bill but also on the abnormal world grain market conditions. Much of the market speculation centered on the fact that we currently have high prices driven by strong demand and low supply. This has caused stock holdings of grain to be drawn down. An indicator of the stock situation relative to consumption can be found in the stocks-to-use ratio. This indicator is useful for evaluating grain price movements and potential movements. This article briefly explores the market relationships that underlie this ratio. It also serves ...

Possible Results Of Freedom To Farm: A Fapri Analysis Of The Congressional Compromise On Agriculture, William H. Meyers, Darnell B. Smith, Steven L. Elmore

Iowa Ag Review

Late last year, U.S. House and Senate conferees reached agreement on language for the Agricultural Reconciliation Act of 1995 (ARA-95). President Clinton later vetoed this as part of his refusal to approve the Balanced Budget Act. The agricultural package, because of its similarities to the 1995 Roberts-Emerson proposal, was called "Freedom to Farm" by some. FAPRI evaluated the ARA-95 proposal soon after the Congressional compromise was reached.

From these data, and what we know about the payment stream, we calculated the payment rates by bushel, acre, and state. Total payments by state under the 1996 FALR Act were also calculated.
