Most benefits that are classified under material goods and commodities are linked to agriculture and the farming industry. Material goods such as cotton poultry meats like beef and pork and even grains like corn, wheat and beans and other crops are often referred to as commodities. These are all bought and sold in large quantities. When the market drops below the fair market price, the government would subsidize funds and repay the farmers. An example where this would be positive is the idea that the farmers are able to continue to run their farm although they are not taking profit because the government pays the farmer instead of the farmer going out of business. An example of a negative benefit would be that the taxes of the other people in the state have to pay for the money paid to the farmer.
