Quota Leasing as a Competitive Strategy: A Story of Chicken Feed, Laying Hens, and Eggs
AbstractThis paper investigates why, under supply control by a marketing board, production quota originally given to downstream producers may ultimately end up in the hands of the latters' upstream suppliers who will lease them back to their original owners. A link between the extent of leasing and the price of quota is established. Finally, a rationale is provided explaining why such leasing contracts contain tying and exclusivity clauses.
