Distributive Effects of the Cap in the Italian Livestock Sector
AbstractIn this paper we provide data on transfers among economic subjects involved in the Cap support guaranteed to the livestock sector in Italy. To compute monetary transfers we refer to the methodology proposed by Tarditi (1999), which integrates the Oecd approach for the computation of Pse and Cse. Disaggregated among six sub-sectors, the analysis shows Italian producers benefiting from sizeable subsidies, especially for dairy products, beef and mutton. This support is mainly financed by Italian households, as consumers and taxpayers. However, since Italy is a net importer within the EU, about one-fifth of the burden on Italian households goes to producers of other EU countries.
