"Is Northern Agricultural Liberalization Beneficial to Developing Countries?"
by Bouët, Antoine, Christophe Bureau, Yvan Decreux and Sebastien Jean

Using an adapted version of the MIRAGE model, this paper aims at assessing the impact of a widespread liberalization in agriculture, concerning border protection as well as domestic support. The CGE model includes imperfect competition and increasing returns to scale in industry and services. It assumes land and labor mobility to be imperfect across sectors, and developing countries have a dual labor market.
Special emphasis is put on measuring properly protection and domestic support. Protection data, from the MAcMaps database, describes applied tariffs, taking preferential agreements exhaustively into account. Domestic support data is updated to 2001 for the EU and the US, and accounts for the Agenda 2000 reform and the New Farm Bill.
The results provide a contrasted picture of the benefits developing countries may draw from agricultural liberalization.
