Abstract

The purpose of this article is to analyse the importance of farm subsidies for the Extremadura economy. To this end, a computable general equilibrium model for this region is presented, with which we analyse the economic effects caused by a simulated removal of these subsidies. Different scenarios involving the labour market rigidities and tax compensation are considered. Model parameters are determined by the procedure known as calibration, using a social accounting matrix constructed for this economy. The results clearly show the negative effects that this elimination would produce on the main micro and macroeconomic variables.
