FARM PROBLEM: The short-run situation in which weather variability creates large fluctuations in farm prices, combined with the long-run situation in which technological advances increase production capabilities even though the demand for agricultural production declines relative to the growth of the overall economy. Taken together these two situations lead to highly unstable farm incomes that tend to decline over time. The solution to this problem has been significant government intervention in the agricultural industry, especially through assorted subsidies and price floors.

RED AGGRESSERINE
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who works hard and fast, plays hard and fast, and takes no prisoners. Family and friends look to you as a leader and pillar of strength, or at least they should. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time at an auction wanting to buy either several magazines on home repairs or a remote controlled sports car with an air spoiler. Be on the lookout for jovial bank tellers. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter D, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 947480. Your preferred shopping venue is auctions. Your special symbol is the ampersand (&).


Is this You?

As a Red Aggresserine, you are somewhat audacious and quite assertive, extremely competitive and a bit vindictive. You take no prisoners when it comes to market negotiations. For you, the thrill is in the competition. You enjoy the challenge of getting the most for the least and will do all you can to come out on top. You live for the hunt, the chase, the transaction. Your adrenaline is triggered by the thoughts of economic victory.


This isn't me! What am I?

A little more experienced, no doubt, but forging ahead in spite of it all. Our economy also steps into an occasional pothole in route to an expanding economic pie. Recession is the nifty term we use for this sort of economic pothole and it will be are our topic for the next few pages. OH NO! LOOK OUT!
