What is Brannan Plan?

Legal Definition
The Brannan Plan was a proposal of "compensatory payments" to American farmers in response to the major post-World War II agricultural problem of large agricultural surpluses stemming from price supports for farmers. The Brannan Plan was named after Charles Brannan, who served as the fourteenth United States Secretary of Agriculture from 1948 to 1953 as a member of President Harry S. Truman's cabinet. It was opposed by conservatives who permanently defeated it.
