Food for thought

Interesting graphic tweeted by Bond theme composer @DavidGArnold, who I met last year at UK Music’s summer party, and we had that conversation you have when you find out you grew up in the same town and went to the same places.

The graphic is, I assume, from the US; it would be interesting to find out equivalent stats for the UK/ EU, especially as CAP reform is now on the horizon. It would also be interesting to see these stats with $ attached, rather than just %s.

    Hi Kerry. Under the current system of direct payments, CAP support has been (largely) decoupled from production – so you couldn’t really extrapolate this data to UK/EU. This is why wine lakes and butter mountains retain something of an ’80s nostalgia (when production was linked to support).

      Yes, the final version of this blogpost said that CAP complicated matters – but looks like I posted an earlier draft. But still very much a subsidised industry, no?
