The pig sector by Darryl Jones( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trade liberalization affects the pattern and structure of agricultural production, with consequences for the environment. But what are these impacts? And do agri-environmental policies affect international competitiveness? This study takes an in-depth look at the pig sector in OECD countries and draws some conclusions about the most appropriate forms of policy intervention. Further trade liberalization is likely to strengthen market trends in the pig sector. Production is expected to slow, if not contract, in OECD European and Asian countries. In these countries, government support for pig production in the form of tariffs and/or export subsidies is generally the highest, and the environmental impacts of pig production on water and air pollution are of greatest concern. This book argues that liberalizing trade is therefore likely to generate some environmental benefits.--Publisher summary
Analysing the composition of producer support : new tools and methods by Darryl Jones( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report considers the analytical potential of the classification system of policy measures in the OECD Producer Support Estimate (PSE) to monitor policy developments. This system of categories, subcategories and labels is based on the form in which transfers are provided to farmers. The analysis of data relating to categories, sub-categories and labels of the PSE classification allows for a critical examination of the strengths and weakness of the PSE classification system. While this system provides a useful picture of some important differences in the way agricultural support policy is implemented over time and between countries, it is obviously limited by the pre-defined categories and labels. But the database also contains a wealth of information on each policy measures, which can be drawn upon for more detailed analysis

Policy Responses in Emerging Economies to International Agricultural Commodity Price Surges by Darryl Jones( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines and classifies policy responses in ten major emerging economies to the rise in international agricultural commodity prices in 2006-08. It also analyses impacts of these responses on the domestic market to evaluate their effectiveness in meeting stated policy objectives. The report separates government responses into four major types: market interventions to limit the rise in food prices, market interventions to control inflation, assistance to consumers through safety nets and support to producers. As an indication of the relative importance of these responses in a given country, the report estimates the fiscal costs of policies applied. Developments in trade flows, price transmission, inflation, consumption and production were used to investigate impacts on domestic markets and to draw policy conclusions. Market interventions to minimise the impact on consumers were not always successful, even if trade flows were disrupted, and had taxing effects on farmers who could not benefit from higher international prices. These taxing effects were often partly compensated by increased input-linked support to farmers, which had a relatively high fiscal cost in some instances
