Impacts of Turkeyâ€™s Integration into the European Union on Agricultural Markets and Income Distribution
AbstractThis study analyzes the impacts of Turkeyâ€™s integration into the EU on price, production, consumption, and self-sufficiency in the selected agricultural markets (wheat, maize, sugar, milk, beef, lamb, and poultry). The study also examines the welfare and the income distribution impacts of the integration. A partial equilibrium model, ModÃ©le Internationale SimplifiÃ© de Simulation (MISS), is used to simulate the impacts of the integration on the agricultural markets and Gini coefficients are calculated to examine the income distribution effects. The results show that the integration has substantial impacts on the selected agricultural markets in Turkey and deteriorates the distribution of income among the selected Turkish producers.
