The Incidence of Market-Stabilising Price Support Schemes
The introduction of a stabilization scheme can raise or lower the wealth of initial owners of land and commodity stocks substantially, even if the are risk neutral. The incidence consists of the capitaliz ed value of the revenue changes along the path to the new stochastic steady state. By ignoring the dynamic path, traditional comparative statics understates the benefits to initial asset holders. Because of differences in dynamic paths, destruction of the commodity can have a lower marginal deadweight loss than a public bu ffer stock, and deficiency payments can be especially attractive when the variability is exogenous to the domestic market.
