Effects Of An Export Subsidy On The U.S. Cotton Industry


  • Duffy, Patricia A.
  • Wohlgenant, Michael K.


In this study, the effects of an export subsidy for cotton are analyzed using a linear elasticity model. The study explicitly addresses the interaction of current domestic policies with the proposed export subsidy. An export subsidy may be a successful method of reducing the government costs of the cotton program.
