            The Big Handout: How US Subsidies and Corporate Welfare Corrupt the World We Live in and Wreak Havoc on Our Food Bills

            The Big Handout: How US Subsidies and Corporate Welfare Corrupt the World We Live in and Wreak Havoc on Our Food Bills (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Kostigen, Thomas M.

            Just reading the word 'subsidies' may cause many people's eyes to glaze over. We don't think it affects us directly, so we tune out. But it turns out that this complicated-sounding issue has an enormous impact on all of us. The Big Handout is about bad fiscal, environmental, agri...cultural, water, energy, health, and foreign policies. And it's a story about just one thing - subsidies. A subsidy is a grant by the government to a private business that is deemed advantageous to the public. Cotton, wheat, corn, soy, and oil are the most subsidised commodities in the United States. In this eye-opening book, New York Times best-selling author Thomas Kostigen explores government policies that cost US taxpayers $200 billion per year, or over $1,500 per household. In some cases we pay more for subsidised goods than we'd pay in a free market - and, in the most shocking abuses of the subsidy system, they pay for goods that aren't even produced. The Big Handout exposes how artificial pricing hurts US citizens and people worldwide, from our waistlines and pocketbooks to our health. By revealing just how toxic America's subsidy system has become for everyone - including the way it distorts the prices of goods produced by genuinely free-trade countries such as Australia - The Big Handout is a wake-up call for farmers, consumers, and politicians.
