How much do taxpayers pay per year for farm subsidies?



  1. 0 Votes

    In the US, it varies from year to year because the government guarantees a minimum price for certain crops, and will pay the difference between that “floor” and the actual selling price the crops fetch at the time, plus a fixed dollar amount per unit produced. The estimate for the 2009 subsidy total is around $7.5 billion, but in recent years where prices were lower it’s been over $16 billion.
