Abstract

Most previous studies of home consumption pricing and producer price equalisation schemes have concentrated on static economic surplus effects under an assumption of a perfectly elastic export demand. This paper compares the effects of different types of producer price equalisation schemes with free trade in the wheat, milk and egg industries allowing for a downward sloping export demand. Average values and variances of prices, quantities, revenues, and economic surplus measures are estimated for each policy in a simulation model allowing a range of values for elasticities of supply and demand, market shares, and variability of supply and export demand. The stabilisation effects of equalisation schemes are evaluated using these estimates.
