For example, sugar production is a $2.4 billion industry, but sugar producers receive $1.5 billion in subsidies.

The amount of that subsidy and therefore the consumer price is negotiated.



What impresses me is that they also subsidize corn (fructose) syrup which is effectively competing with themselves?
