Pugh an Extension economist at North Carolina state University. As food costs Rose last year the agricultural policy specialist said Many Consumers reacted predictably and called for government action. Price controls were imposed on a number of items at retail but not at the farm level. A however a Pugh said a Price controls were found to be self defeating in the Long run. Producers respond to High prices by increasing Supply.
