In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Ryan Yonk, Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Economics and Finance at Utah State University and Executive Director of Strata Policy, joins host H. Sterling Burnett to talk about a study he and his colleagues at Strata and Utah State have produced – an in-depth analysis of the economic impact of renewable fuel mandates.
What many may find surprising, the study found that rural, “corn belt,” farm counties have actually faired worse than the rest of the nation during the recovery with the mandates themselves paying a role in farmer’s economic woes. This is despite the fact that these counties have historically chased renewable fuel subsidies.
