The current agricultural crisis has to do with the scarcity and poor quality of food, along with problems related to consumer health issues and environmental damage. In light of this situation, there is an urgent need to build sustainable systems capable of balancing social, environmental and economic needs in the long term. In order to implement these systems, lessons can be learned from the corrective measures adopted in previous crises, particularly in the financial one, and applied to the current dynamics of the agricultural market under scrutiny. Based on this study, the paper illustrates possible forms of government intervention that would allow the rise of responsible systems that would satisfy the demand for food (primary need) through an adequate supply and would allow resources to be transferred effectively and efficiently.
