"Identifying and Measuring Agricultural Policy Bias in Ethiopia"
by Robinson, Sherman and Ahmed Hashim

A static, single-country Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model of Ethiopia is used to measure price incentive bias against the agriculture sector prevalent in the Ethiopian economy. The experiments show that there are moderate signs of indirect tax policy induced traded agriculture sector bias in Ethiopia. But this also indicates that the historical trade policy bias against agriculture was largely eliminated during the 1990s. The impact of indirect tax structures on relative price incentives has a moderate bias against traded agricultural production and exports.
