The University of California Giannini Foundation of Agricultural Economics announces that the latest edition of its bimonthly ARE Update newsletter is a special issue focused on the 2018 Farm Bill and the impending “Brexit” of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

The special issue’s introduction, written by UC Davis Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ARE) distinguished professors Richard J. Sexton and Daniel A. Sumner, describes why certain sections of the Farm Bill are examined, and how the Brexit story comes to us with key insights from ARE Distinguished Professor Colin A.
