另一方面，農業方面的支持也被視為在農糧研究上最為廣泛討論的課題之一。尤其，在某些個案所造成的供給過剩、傾銷，更被視為相當負面的影響。本論文提出一個概念性的模式，其牽涉政治的、經濟的與經濟計量的指標。在此架構下，利用一基本的定價與營收最佳化(Pricing and Revenue Optimization, PRO)技術，可對補金額建立一適當的評估，並藉以促使一個貿易模式(在本論問係以中國的小麥為例)可行且合理地運作，以達到確保價格穩定、避免市場扭曲的目標。小麥的國內價格在各國，尤其是在中國，一向低於國際的指標價格，顯示國內政策與貿易政策已造成農民無法獲得其作物在全球市場應得的報酬。
There is an intuitive tendency to isolate business concepts from Governments policy making. Indeed, the way both parts analyze their strategies is conditioned by stereotypes, prejudges or merely by paradigms. From this thesis proposal, every country has to work as a big corporation, promoting the high quality and low cost of its production (maximizing monetary values for the final consumers) and has to focus all its policies, laws, and regulations in order to achieve that goal. “The forces of supply and demand and the resulting process of price formation –the <invisible hand> of Adam Smith – lie at the heart of our current understanding of market economics.” They are embodied in the concept of the “rational” (profit-maximizing) firm, and define the mechanism by which market equilibrium are reached. On the other hand, “agricultural support is considered one of the most discussed subjects for researches in agriculture and food. In particular, its impacts were classified negatively in some cases (among countries) where agricultural support results in overproduction and causes dumping in other countries markets.” The thesis proposal is a conceptual model, which involve political, economical and econometric measures. In this sense applying a basic Pricing and Revenue Optimization technique, it’s possible to formulate a right assessment on the subsidy quantity that make a trade model (in this case for wheat in China) to work feasibly and logically in order to assure price stabilization and avoid distortions in the market. For wheat, and particularly in China, domestic prices were lower than the international indicator price, suggesting that domestic and trade policies prevented farmers from receiving as good a return on their wheat crop as was possible on world markets. The subsidized food prices could be expected to increase the demanded quantity of food, thus increasing prices further, and potentially contributing to an inflationary spiral. Nevertheless, production and demand volatility eventually will find a “new equilibrium” and the resulting optimal price for customer can assure food security and profitability for producers. Multilateral subsidization in agriculture would improve access to overseas markets and stabilize world market prices for agricultural commodities.
