This chapter focuses on the political struggles over the ecological “restoration” of the Everglades, describing the criticisms leveled against the sugar industry for the negative environmental impact of cane cultivation, and the politics and economics of plantation production in south Florida. It discusses how the activities of sugarcane producers affect the downstream ecology, and addresses the “sugar question,” which refers to the intense international debates on the political economy of global sugar production and trade. The sugar question can be understood as a series of international and domestic political disputes and compromises over the use of various instruments employed to control global trade in the commodity. These instruments include bounties, tariffs, duties, and quotas. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   Everglades ecology, sugar industry, sugarcane production, sugarcane producers, downstream ecology, sugar question, global trade
