It shows that the decline has largely been due to a narrowing of the gap between domestic and world agricultural commodity prices.
An Opportunity Lost: The Truman Administration And the Farm Policy Debate.

Virgil W. Dean, "An Opportunity Lost: The Truman Administration And the Farm Policy Debate".
Publisher: University of Missouri Press | ISBN: 0826216501 | 2006 edition | PDF | 280 Pages | 1.25 MB

Harry Truman's "Fair Deal" domestic policy agenda promised to continue Roosevelt's "New Deal" and, with some modification for postwar realities, to guide America into a new age of peace and prosperity. Agricultural policy was a cornerstone of this program, as it attempted to transform the farm program from the parity price foundation crafted by FDR to one based on income support through direct payment to farmers. Virgil W. Dean takes a new look at the much-heralded "Brannan Plan" to examine in detail the farm policy dilemma and Truman's quest for a long-range agricultural program that would confront the problems of an industry in the midst of a technological revolution - one in which regional and commodity-based differences only served to complicate any solution.
