Fundamental Forces Affecting Livestock Producers, John Lawrence, James Mintert 2016 Iowa State University

Fundamental Forces Affecting Livestock Producers, John Lawrence, James Mintert

John Lawrence

In a seminal Harvard Business Review article published in 1979, Michael Porter identified five competitive forces that shape industry competition, all of which feed into rivalry among existing competitors. Porter’s framework has most often been applied to industries producing and marketing differentiated products. Conversely, U.S. livestock and milk production still mostly resembles a commodity market with largely undifferentiated products marketed to a processing sector that, based on the Herfindahl-Herschman Index (HHI)-an industry concentration measure based on market shares that is easily computed and compared across industries- and Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission definitions, is unconcentrated ...

Implications Of The North American Free Trade Agreement For Long-Term Adjustments In U.S.-Mexican Beef Production And Trade, Bryan Melton, Wallace Huffman

Wallace Huffman

North America is in the midst of forming one of the world's largest free trade areas. The Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement was signed in 1988. The signing of the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between the United States and Mexico completes the,/ major agreements for the trading area.

Market Design Test Environments, S. Widergren, Junjie Sun, Leigh Tesfatsion

Leigh Tesfatsion

Power industry restructuring continues to evolve at multiple levels of system operations. At the bulk electricity level, several organizations charged with regional system operation are implementing versions of a wholesale power market platform (WPMP) in response to U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission initiatives. Recently the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and several regional initiatives have been pressing the integration of demand response as a resource for system operations. These policy and regulatory pressures are driving the exploration of new market designs at the wholesale and retail levels. The complex interplay among structural conditions, market protocols, and learning behaviors in ...


Agent-Based Computational Economics: Growing Economies From The Bottom Up, Leigh Tesfatsion 2016 Iowa State University

Agent-Based Computational Economics: Growing Economies From The Bottom Up, Leigh Tesfatsion

Leigh Tesfatsion

Agent-based computational economics (ACE) is the computational study of economies modeled as evolving systems of autonomous interacting agents. Thus, ACE is a specialization of economics of the basic complex adaptive systems paradigm. This study outlines the main objectives and defining characteristics of the ACE methodology and discusses similarities and distinctions between ACE and artificial life research. Eight ACE research areas are identified, and a number of publications in each area are highlighted for concrete illustration. Open questions and directions for future ACE research are also considered. The study concludes with a discussion of the potential benefits associated with ACE modeling ...


Whole-Farm Revenue Insurance For Crop And Livestock Producers, Bruce A. Babcock, Dermot J. Hayes 2016 Iowa State University

Whole-Farm Revenue Insurance For Crop And Livestock Producers, Bruce A. Babcock, Dermot J. Hayes

Dermot J. Hayes

The collapse in hog prices in the fall of 1998 has renewed interest in using insurance as a means of providing an affordable safety net to U.S. farmers. One option that has received attention is to expand the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s crop insurance program to include livestock producers. Because the ongoing financial crisis in the hog sector was not caused by production or disease problems, it is apparent that producers could have benefited from either price insurance or revenue insurance.

Transmission Of Price Variability Under Tariffication, Dermot J. Hayes, Thomas Iver Wahl, Stanley R. Johnson 2016 Iowa State University

Transmission Of Price Variability Under Tariffication, Dermot J. Hayes, Thomas Iver Wahl, Stanley R. Johnson

Dermot J. Hayes

Recent proposals to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) have called for the conversion of all nontariff trade barriers into their equivalents and the subsequent reduction of these tariff equivalents over time. The purpose of tariffication is to provide a methodology to quantify nontariff trade barriers to make them more visible and to provide a framework within which to reduce them. Many of these barriers are designed to stabilize domestic prices by breaking the link to world prices and, thus, the link with the variable of world prices.

Dermot J. Hayes

A dynamic multicountry, multicommodity model is used to evaluate the impact of a moderate General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) agreement. The terms of this agreement are as follows. 1) Export subsidy quantities (using annual and price wedges) are reduced by 50 percent from the 1986-88 average by 1996. 2) Import restrictions are tariffed and reduced by 33 percent form the 1986-88 average by 1996 (tariffs are measured by using an annual price wedge approach). 3) Internal supports, as measured by the aggregate measure of support (AMS) are reduced by 33 percent from the 1986-88 average by 1996 (fixed ...

The Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) received a request in mid-February to analyze the proposed changes to agriculture and agricultural trade made by Arthur Dunkel. These changes essentially fall into three areas. 1) Export Competition. Subsidies are subject to reduction in two ways. Expenditures are to be reduced by 36 percent and quantities exported with the benefit of subsidies are to be reduced by 24 percent from 1986-90 average levels. 2) Internal Support. Using a world reference price based on the 1986-88 average levels, internal supports as measured by an aggregate measure of support (AMS) are to be ...

The Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) prepares in the late fall of every year a preliminary baseline based on agricultural production, consumption, and trade. This is followed by an extensive outside review, re-evaluation of projections, and completion of the final baseline in January. The baseline assumes continuation of current agricultural and trade policies by world governments and assumes normal weather in the future. Macroeconomic assumptions on world general economic activity are derived from both Project LINK and the WEFA Group projections.

These projections are intended for use by farmers, U.S. Congress, government agencies and officials, agribusinesses, and others who do medium-range and long-term planning. This outlook introduces a fertilizer model and a cellulosic ethanol model and presents an improved greenhouse gas emission accounting model. This allows FAPRI-ISU to include in its outlook projections of world fertilizer use by nutrient, by country, by commodity, and by year, and projections ...

The Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute develops a long-term outlook for the world agricultural sector once each year. While the initial steps to develop the new baseline start as soon as the previous year’s baseline is completed, the work begins in earnest in September and October with a discussion of policy and macroeconomic assumptions as well as a review of the models to be used in the upcoming exercise. The preliminary baseline is developed in November and that preliminary baseline is then shared among a number of reviewers. During the first or second week of January, more than ...
