Productivity Gaps, Price Advantages and Competitiveness in E.C. Agriculture
AbstractMultilateral Tornqvist indexes are used to estimate relative levels of efficiency in wheat, beet, hog, and milk production for the EC-10 countries. Purchasing Power Parities for aggregate input are computed, thanks to specific PPPs for the agricultural sector on the basic heading level. They make possible a comparison of price advantages (for output and input) among countries. Explanations of these variations in terms of real exchange rates, green parities, tax policy and output quality suggest that considerable distortions of competition subsist in spite of the agricultural common market.
