Agricultural Policies of Industrial Countries and Their Effects on Traditional Food Exporters


  • Anderson, Kym
  • Tyers, Rod


A multi-commodity model of world food markets is used to quantify the adverse impact of agricultural p olicies in Western Europe and East Asia on farmer welfare in Australa sia and North America. Net farm incomes for these traditional exporte rs would be one-third greater in the absence of protectionism in othe r industrial countries. Econometric analysis suggests that agricultur al protectionism is likely to continue to grow as per capita incomes and agricultural comparative disadvantage increase in industrial coun tries.
