In this book, Ken Glozer presents the history, the promises, and the truth about federal corn ethanol policy. The book is based on an in-depth, fact-based evaluation each major claims made by the advocates of the policy. After providing a detailed history of the policy from 1977 to the present, he examines whether any of the claims made by those who advocated the current federal corn ethanol policy are true (he found only one). The policy does indeed create jobs in rural areas of the ten largest corn-producing states in the Midwest but at a high cost to others.
