    Investment in agricultural R&D has proved extraordinarily successful, with a benefit-cost ratio around 20:1. But federal

    spending for agriculture has declined over the past several decades, even though R&D spending could have been

  • 8/6/2019 bMichael Events This Week 15 July 2011


    doubled in 2009 with a 20 percent reduction in farm subsidies. Philip G. Pardey of the University of Minnesota will explain

    why investment in R&D is so important for increasing agricultural productivity and keeping food prices low.

    Not So Sweet: Sugar, Milk Programs Are Sour for Families

    Friday, July 15, 12:15-2:00 p.m.

    US Capitol Visitors Center

    Congressional Meeting Room South

    Washington, DC 20515


    As a result of federal policies, US families pay nearly twice the world price for sugar and other sweeteners. US sugar

    programs cost the average family $40 per year in higher food costs, and these increased costs have created the high-

    fructose corn syrup industry. Gary Brester of Montana State University will argue that the sugar programs should be

    repealed. As for dairy policy, government policies increase the price of milk for US consumers and increase the income of

    some milk producers. These programs hurt large, efficient dairy farmers and limit innovation, and they should be

    substantially reformed.

    Opening Reception

    Saturday, July 16, 4:00-7:00 p.m.

    Over the course of nearly six decades, Dr. David C. Driskell has

    created an unquestionable and profound impact in the arts through an

    extensive body of artwork, scholarship, curating, and teaching. World-

    renowned as a leading authority on African American Art, Dr. Driskell's

    own artwork is collected by several major museums, including the

    National Gallery of Art, the High Museum of Art, and the Yale University

    Art Gallery. Having served as a Professor at Fisk University, HowardUniversity, then at the University of Maryland beginning in 1977, it

    should come as no surprise that Dr. Driskell's legacy extends through

    several students who have built impressive careers as artists, teachers,

    and scholars in their own right. Artistic Reflectionscelebrates that

    legacy by featuring Dr. Driskell's work alongside that of three of his

    former students: Jeremy Austin, Starmanda Bullock, and Sylvia

    Snowden. Artistic Reflectionsis presented with the generous support

    and cooperation of the David C. Driskell Center for the Study of VisualArts and Culture of African Americans and the African Diaspora.

    Free. Open to the Public
