Some scholars take negative attitude to price support or hold that price support shall be abandoned, taking amber policy as what to be weakened or emphasizing poor performance of price support. However, as the fundament of national economy, agriculture, whether well developed or not, is closely relative to the national economy in the whole. Price support, in case of drastic rise and/or drop, is in position to ensure national food supply and maintain our farmers' vital interest. Price support, though a policy to be weakened to the uppermost limit specified in the Agriculture Agreement, still has a long way to the uppermost limit; the poor performance of our support is somehow due to our imperfect coordinated sets of measures, as the same problem to other supporting policies. Therefore , what is crucial is not to abandon price support but to execute the polity better.This dissertation, on the basis of China's real situation, makes a systematical study, viewed from the safety of our food supply as well as farmer's vital interest, into the policy of price support in the clue of problem-analysis-solution.
