Hastings International and Comparative Law Review


This Note examines the U.S. Government's sugar program and the criticism it has received. After outlining the history of the program, the author describes current law and its adverse effect on U.S. consumers. Next, the Note examines how the sugar program undermines U.S. trade and foreign policy goals. The author concludes by recommending that the U.S. express a willingness to change its policy in the current round of GATT negotiations to provide impetus for multilateral reduction of agricultural protectionism.
