Agricultural Policy Debate: A Survey


  • Edwards, Geoff W


A survey is provided of writings between 1976 and 1985 on, or directly relevant to, Australian agricultural polic y. The areas covered are background and overview; industry policy, in cluding tariff compensation; home consumption price schemes; quotas, input subsidies, and futures trading by marketing boards; stabilizati on; adjustment and the capital market; and macroeconomics and agricul ture. An increasingly critical approach has been taken in identi-fyin g sources of inefficiency in agriculture and in considering ways of r educing them. Private interest explanations of policy decisions have received serious study, and macroeconomic issues have received increa sing attention. Copyright 1987 by The Economic Society of Australia.
