Agricultural and Financial Market Interdependence in the Short Run


  • Robert G. Chambers


A theoretical model capable of examining the effects of various monetary policies on agriculture is developed. Results from comparative static experiments with the model show that a restrictive monetary policy may adversely affect agriculture. Results from the theoretical model are compared with earlier studies and are empirically investigated using vector autoregression techniques. In general, empirical analysis supports the theoretical developments.
