This chapter studies the second major issue that affects mankind, namely access to food. It outlines the barriers to trade and the tenets of the trade regime, and identifies subsidies as the worst barrier to international trade in agricultural commodities. It shows that international trade barriers affect the agricultural commodities market, and introduces the Agreement on Agriculture (AOA), which helped decrease disputes over agricultural subsidies over a period of nine years.
