European Union Direct Payments to Farmers Revisited
AbstractA logistic function framework is used to allocate European Union Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) direct payments to farmers among the different member states. Total CAP expenditure is the starting point for the process, which contemplates two phases. In Phase 1 expenditure is allocated by taking into consideration the economic dimension of farms in each country. In Phase 2 the amount allocated to each member state is further modulated to accommodate both economic efficiency and green house gas emissions generated by the country.
