I agree with most of what Prof. Posner writes in this piece, but I'm not sure I see how urban food subsidies make farmers worse off. Is this an argument that the tax incidence on the rural population (i.e., to fund the subsidies) exceeds the increased price paid to farmers due to the food subsidy? Perhaps this is the case, but it depends on elasticities of supply and demand for food and how the subsidy is financed. In contrast, restrictions on food exports unambiguously hurt the domestic agricultural sector.

It is tells about the demand of food. If the population of a country increased it is sure that the demand of the food is also increased. It is the law of utility.

Having read this I thought it was very informative. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this article together. I once again find myself spending way to much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!
