    Abstract

    The deregulation of dairy marketing that occurred on 1 July 2000 is a fascinating case study in microeconomic reform. The role of interacting industry and institutional features in the movement to deregulation is explained, with political realities being recognised. A key part of the deregulation bundle was an unprecedented "structural adjustment" package valued at about one and a half billion dollars (in 1998-1999). Questions are raised about the rationale for this package, the process of determining it and the means of funding it.
