Europe's Common Agricultural Policy no longer suits consumers or small farmers, it damages the environment and it hurts the world's poorer economies. Julie Wolf argues that the EU will not be able to meet the challenges of enlargement and world trade liberalisation unless it reforms its farm policy drastically, notably by breaking the link between subsidies and production. Moreover, there should be more emphasis on improving food safety and the quality of the environment, and less on managed markets. Rural areas need investment in telecoms, education and transport as much as farm subsidies.
