The article focuses on issues related to agriculture. Farm support in the European Union is legendary, the reason being used is that the Europeans remember what it is like to starve and don't want to face that situation again. The decisions for the next generation of agriculture policy are being made now in places like Geneva, Switzerland. Farm bills are important, but it's likely that world trade policy will dictate just how many changes have to be made. They may have to bow to the World Trade Organization rules in the future.
