Pricing and policy problems in the northeast fluid milk industry



Pricing and policy problems in the northeast fluid milk industry



Agricultural and Resource Economics Review 35(2): 239-250



This article documents the need for reform of milk pricing in the Northeast (USA). It is argued that the New York price gouging law can be recast as a fair share law. This new milk policy "kills two birds with one stone." It corrects regional inequities in raw milk pricing by reforming the pricing of milk at retail by limiting and redistributing excessive retail margins to farmers and consumers.
