Subsidizing John Wayne

(p.117) Fourteen Subsidizing John Wayne


University of California Press

Government subsidies to aid indigent people or elevate corporate profits have become widespread in America, and their dispensation a recurring point of contention among politicians and ordinary people. This chapter discusses the impacts of subsidy on Great Basin rangelands. It also describes a way to expose the hidden subsidies in livestock operations so as to judge long-term sustainability. The method of analysis, using energy output/input ratios, had been used for some time by ecologists to describe how ecosystems function.

Keywords:   government subsidies, subsidy, Great Basin, rangelands, livestock, ecosystems
