Commodity policy and underinvestment in agricultural research
AbstractThis paper examines the joint determination of public policies which provide agricultural research and those which provide subsidies to farmers. The paper suggests that the puzzlingly consistent finding of "underinvestment" in agricultural research may be related to the inseparability of these two types of policies in the policy choice problem.
