"Economic Implications of a Foot and Mouth Disease Free Latin American Beef Sector"
by Countryman, Amanda M. and Amy Hagerman


Foot and mouth disease (FMD) has caused significant damage to Latin America’s beef sector through both production losses and limits to international market access. Using a base year of 2001, we utilize historical outbreak data and estimated production losses in select Latin American countries in tandem with a global economic modeling framework to understand what the domestic and international price effects as well as trade effects could have been, had FMD outbreaks in 2001 been prevented. Relatively little research exists to fully examine the economic effects of FMD on the beef sector in a general equilibrium framework and this works aims to fill this gap.
