Joining in the discussion on changes in the Common Agricultural Policy the author draws attention to the political aspects of food production and its special position in nearly all national economies. Analysing the share of individual production factors in the shaping of agricultural prices the author defends the European Union's right to shape its own agricultural policy and to protect its internal market. He also proves that this policy has a minimal influence on the situation in the so-called Third World countries.
