That's a naive thought, especially in a global economy where many governments subsidize.
But this really isn't the place for politics, right?

Your assumption is correct.  Using your example of wheat, if you let free
markets operate, then farmers who couldn't survive growing wheat would stop
growing wheat and switch to a crop that would make them more money.  I
believe that all government subsidies should be eliminated and that we
should pay market prices for goods and services.  Government subsidies are
nothing more than price manipulation and welfare for businesses.  They cost
taxpayers more money than it would if we just paid the market price for
products and services, because there is the added cost of government
oversight and dispursement of funds.
