Distributional Aspects of CAP Price Support


  • Brown, Colin G


The benefits from Common Agricultural Policy price support to farms of different type, size, income class, and region are identified. Benefits are shown to concentrate on the large, higher income farms and to be unevenly distributed among farm types and regions. The variation is substantial, with most of the variation in benefits across farms and regions due to the different farm sizes and not the disparate levels of commodity price support.
