  • how to design a targeted Agricultural Subsidy system efficiency or equity
    PLOS ONE, 2012
    Co-Authors: Ronggang Cong, Mark Brady

    Abstract:

    In this paper we appraise current Agricultural Subsidy policy in the EU. Several sources of its inefficiency are identified: it is inefficient for supporting farmers’ incomes or guaranteeing food security, and irrational transfer payments decoupled from actual performance that may be negative for environmental protection, social cohesion, etc. Based on a simplified economic model, we prove that there is “reverse redistribution” in the current tax-Subsidy system, which cannot be avoided. To find a possible way to distribute subsidies more efficiently and equitably, several alternative Subsidy systems (the pure loan, the harvest tax and the income contingent loan) are presented and examined.
