The 1992 EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) MacSharry reforms reduced intervention prices for cereals and simultaneously introduced direct payments to producers. This paper, estimating Irish cereal producers risk attitudes and associated premiums, compares the level of the direct payment with producers' risk premia in order to see whether the introduction of the reforms was implicitly welfare enhancing for the 1993-1998 time period.
