Agricultural trade reform and the Doha development agenda by Kym Anderson( Book )

39 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anderson and Martin examine the extent to which various regions, and the world as a whole, could gain from multilateral trade reform over the next decade. They use the World Bank's linkage model of the global economy to examine the impact first of current trade barriers and agricultural subsidies, and then of possible outcomes from the World Trade Organization's Doha round. The results suggest moving to free global merchandise trade would boost real incomes in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia (and in Cairns Group countries) proportionately more than in other developing countries or high-income countries. Real returns to farm land and unskilled labor and real net farm incomes would rise substantially in those developing country regions, thereby alleviating poverty. A Doha partial liberalization could take the world some way toward those desirable outcomes, but more so the more agricultural subsidies are disciplined and applied tariffs are cut."

New silk roads : East Asia and world textile markets by Kym Anderson( Book )

19 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The changing patterns of production and trade in fibres, textiles and clothing provide a classic case study of the dynamics of our interdependent world economy. For centuries Asia supplied the textile factories of Europe with natural fibres, including silk from East Asia exports virtually no natural fibres and instead is the world's most important exporter of manufactured textile products and chief importer of fibres. New Silk Roads, first published in 1992, demonstrates that despite the import barriers erected by advanced economies, textiles and clothing production continues to serve as an engine of growth for developing economies seeking to export their way out of poverty. This book is based on selected papers given at a conference which discussed East Asia's role in world fibre, textile and clothing markets. It draws on trade and development theory as well as on historical evidence to trace the development of these changing markets, which are now dominated by the newly industrialized economies of Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong and, increasingly, China and Thailand

Global effects of liberalizing trade in farm products by Kym Anderson( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the outset, the Liberalization of agricultural trade was at the top of the agenda of the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations, which got under way in Geneva in 1987 under the auspices of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). For two or three decades, agricultural trade has been in a state of crisis, occasionally eased by poor harvests in some part of the world. The crisis is the consequence of the increasing protection afforded to the agricultural sector in nearly all industrialized countries." "Public discussion of the crisis has been greatly assisted recently by a number of major reports, among them the World Bank's World Development Report for 1986, which was devoted to the crisis and drew, in part, on a study by Kym Anderson and Rodney Tyers. This last analysis was a quantitative assessment of the potential effects of liberalizing agricultural trade in both developed and developing countries." "In this Thames Essay, the authors have revised the estimates prepared for the World Bank, which at the time attracted a lot of interest, and included some policy analysis of the policy issues that need to be addressed by governments."--BOOK JACKET
Distortions to agricultural incentives in Europe's transition economies by Kym Anderson( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Distortions to Agricultural Incentives in Europe's Transition Economies provides an overview of the evolution of distortions to agricultural incentives caused by price and trade policies in the economies of Eastern Europe and Central Asia that are transitioning away from central planning. The book includes country and subregional studies of the ten transition economies of Central and Eastern Europe that joined the European Union in 2004 or 2007, of seven other large member countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States, and of Turkey."--Jacket
Distortions to agricultural incentives in Latin America by Kym Anderson( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an overview of the evolution of distortions to agricultural incentives caused by price and trade policies in the World Bank-defined region of Latin America and the Caribbean. Following the introduction and summary, it includes commissioned country studies of one Caribbean, one Central American, and six South American economies. The chapters are followed by two appendixes. The first describes the methodology used to measure the nominal and relative rates of assistance to farmers and the taxes and subsidies involved in food consumption; the second provides country and regional summaries, in tables, of annual estimates of these rates of assistance. This study on Latin America is based on a sample of eight countries, comprising the big four economies of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico; Colombia and Ecuador, two of the poorest South American tropical countries; the Dominican Republic, the largest Caribbean economy; and Nicaragua, the poorest country in Central America. Together, in 2000-04, these countries accounted for 78 percent of the region's population, 80 percent of the region's agricultural value added, and 84 percent of the total gross domestic product (GDP) of Latin America
The political economy of agricultural price distortions by Kym Anderson( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite numerous policy reforms since the 1980s, farm product prices remain heavily distorted in both high-income and developing countries. This book seeks to improve our understanding of why societies adopted these policies, and why some but not other countries have undertaken reforms. Drawing on recent developments in political economy theories and in the generation of empirical measures of the extent of price distortions, the present volume provides both analytical narratives of the historical origins of agricultural protectionism in various parts of the world and a set of political econometric analyses aimed at explaining the patterns of distortions that have emerged over the past five decades. These new studies shed much light on the forces affecting incentives and those facing farmers in the course of national and global economic and political development. They also show how those distortions might change in the future - or be changed by concerted actions to offset pressures from vested interests"-
Agriculture, trade reform and poverty reduction : implications for Sub-Saharan Africa by Kym Anderson( Book )

12 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prepared by the UN Conference of Trade and Development, this study addresses the effects of WTO trade reform on poverty at three levels: on developing countries as a group; on different types of developing countries; and on different types of households in developing countries. The results point to both opportunities and challenges provided by the WTO negotiations for developing countries seeking their way out of poverty.--Publisher's description
Distortions to agricultural incentives : a global perspective, 1955-2007( Book )

18 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fifth and last volume in the 'Distortions to Agricultural Incentives' series focus on distortions to agricultural incentives from a global perspective. During the 1960s and 1970s most developing countries imposed anti-agricultural policies, while many high-income countries restricted agricultural imports and subsidized their farmers. Both sets of policies inhibited economic growth and poverty alleviation in developing countries. Since the 1980s, however, many developing countries began to reverse that policy trend. This book brings together the first-ever comprehensive and consistent set of
Distortions to agricultural incentives in Africa by Kym Anderson( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of every two people in Sub-Saharan Africa survives on less than $1.25 a day. That proportion has changed little over the past three decades, unlike in Asia and elsewhere, so the region's share of global poverty has risen from one-tenth to almost one-third since 1980. About 70 percent of today's 400 million poor Africans live in rural areas and depend directly or indirectly on farming for their livelihoods. While that rural share was even higher in the past, it means policies affecting the incentives for farmers to produce and sell farm products remain a major influence on the extent of Africa's poverty. The case studies help address questions such as the following: where is there still a policy bias against agricultural production? To what extent are some farmers now being protected from import competition? What are the political economic forces behind the more-successful reformers, and how do they compare with those in less-successful countries where major distortions in agricultural incentives remain? How important have domestic political forces been in bringing about reform, as compared with international forces? What explains the cross commodity pattern of distortions within the agricultural sector of each country? What policy lessons and trade implications can be drawn from these differing experiences with a view to ensuring better growth-enhancing and poverty-reducing outcomes in the study's focus countries and in the region's other economies?
Distortions to agricultural incentives in Asia by Kym Anderson( Book )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Distortions to Agricultural Incentives in Asia provides an overview of the evolution of distortions to agricultural incentives caused by price and trade policies in the 12 largest economies of East and South Asia. Together these countries constitute more than 95 percent of the region's population, agricultural output, and overall GDP. Sectoral, trade, and exchange rate policies in the region have changed greatly since the 1950s, and there have been substantial reforms since the 1980s, most notably in China and India. Nonetheless, numerous price distortions in this region remain and others have been added in recent years. The new empirical indicators in these country studies provide a strong evidence-based foundation for assessing the successes and failures of the past and for evaluating policy options for the years ahead."--Jacket
Agricultural price distortions, inequality, and poverty by Kym Anderson( Book )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trade policy reforms in recent decades have sharply reduced the distortions that were harming agriculture in developing countries. Yet global trade in farm products continues to be far more distorted than trade in nonfarm goods, and in ways that reduce some forms of poverty and inequality but worsen others, so the net effects are unclear without empirical modeling. Using a new set of estimates of agricultural price distortions, this book brings together economy-wide global and national empirical studies that focus on the net effects of the remaining distortions to world merchandise trade on poverty and inequality globally and in various developing countries. The global LINKAGE model results suggest that removing remaining distortions would reduce international inequality, largely by boosting net farm incomes and raising real wages for unskilled workers in developing countries, and would reduce the number of poor people worldwide by 3 percent. The analysis based on the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) model for a sample of 15 countries, and ten stand-alone national case studies from three continents, suggest even larger reductions in poverty. This is especially so if only the non-poor are subjected to increased income taxation to compensate for the loss of trade tax revenue. The volume draws out the implications for policy reforms in developing countries, pointing to ways in which complementary domestic policies can increase the likelihood that freeing markets for farm products and other goods would reduce both poverty and inequality
The economics of quarantine and the SPS Agreement by Cheryl McRae( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection resulted from an international workshop funded and organised by Biosecurity Australia, the agency of government responsible for analysing Australia's quarantine import risks and for negotiating multilateral SPS rules and less restrictive access to overseas markets for Australian produce. The workshop, which was held at the Melbourne Business School on 24-25 October 2000, brought together a distinguished group of applied economists and quarantine policy analysts whose focus involves regions as disparate as Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and New Zealand, in addition to Australia
Agricultural trade, policy reforms, and global food security by Kym Anderson( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the potential for policy reform as a short-term, low-cost way to sustainably enhance global food security. It argues that reforming policies that distort food prices and trade will promote the openness needed to maximize global food availability and reduce fluctuations in international food prices. Beginning with an examination of historical trends in markets and policies, Anderson assesses the prospects for further reforms, and projects how they may develop over the next fifteen years. He pays particular attention
