Behind the Scenes of the Dairy Cartel

Rarely are the cutthroat politics of our nation’s agriculture cartels exposed for average Americans to see, but a recent example of a California dairy man being crushed by the establishment dairy interests clearly illustrates how depression-era federal laws designed to keep the industry afloat in tough economic times are now used to eliminate competition and keep prices (and profits) artificially high.
Agriculture is undoubtedly one of the last great bastions of socialism in this country. Fortunately, groups like the Cato Institute are working to publicize how these policies hurt consumers and taxpayers alike.
