World Foodgrain Prices – The Effect of Exporting Countries’ Policies
The present study attempts to analyze the role of major exporting countries’ stocks and exports on world price, with a special focus on the world grain markets. The analysis uses the structural econometric modeling framework. The results confirm the crucial importance of the level of exporters’ stocks and their trade policies for the world market stability. The study brings out some important basic differences between wheat and rice markets as regards exporting countries’ policies and their influence on the world market. The results are also supported by the long-term developments in the two markets. Given the importance of stocks and flows in the world foodgrain markets, one crucial policy implication of the study is that a new institutional framework for managing world food stocks needs to be urgently evolved.
