What Are the Economic Welfare Effects of Local Food Marketing? Exploring Impacts with the Case of Colorado Apples
AbstractThis paper explores the welfare changes as a result of changes in prices and quantities of Colorado labeled apples relative to domestically produced apples, using equilibrium displacement model with two-regions: Colorado State and the rest of the United States. The results showed that in the short run producers would lose $300, while in the long run producers would increase supply to capture $263,000 in increased surplus.
