Dr. Monica Hughes has an article in the Summer 2009 edition of The Objective Standard (TOS) entitled “A Brief History of U.S. Farm Policy and the Need for Free-Market Agriculture“.

I just read it, and I found it very informative. I know very little about farm and agriculture policy, so her article filled in a big gap in my knowledge. If you’re not a subscriber, you can purchase a PDF of the article from TOS for $4.95 at the article link.

She also runs a website devoted to free market agricultural policy, Free Agriculture – Restore Markets (FARM).

Congratulations, Monica!

As a side note, this the fifth Objective Standard article written by members of our local Front Range Objectivism Group, all done pretty much by people working in their spare time on top of their regular day jobs.

The list of TOS articles from FROG members includes:

Monica Hughes, “A Brief History of U.S. Farm Policy and the Need for Free-Market Agriculture“, Summer 2009.

Ari Armstrong, “Lest We Be Doomed to Repeat It: A Survey of Amity Shlaes’s History of the Great Depression“, Spring 2009.

Paul Hsieh, “Mandatory Health Insurance: Wrong for Massachusetts, Wrong for America“, Fall 2008.

Lin Zinser and Paul Hsieh, “Moral Health Care vs. ‘Universal Health Care’“, Winter 2007.

Diana Hsieh, “Egoism Explained: A Review of Tara Smith’s Ayn Rand’s Normative Ethics: The Virtuous Egoist“, Spring 2007.

I’d especially like to thank Craig Biddle, editor of The Objective Standard, for his hard work in publishing such a consistently strong journal, as well as for providing a great platform for new writers such as me.
