What questions do you have for Tyler Cowen?

How do protectionist agriculture policies impact the food economy?

This could be a companion video to subsidies wherein you discuss quotas and industry led policies (regulatory capture) that are designed to protect certain industries or regions from competition. Perhaps discuss how certain policies or regulations prevent local farms from competing or home agriculture. Many places have regulations preventing the keeping of chickens or bees or growing food. The SCOTUS case Wickard v. Philburn is relevant here as well. This also is related to tariffs and trade embargoes. Cuban sugar, etc. Lots of potential material here.
