  • American Journal of Agricultural Economics Volume 100: A Century of
           Publishing the Frontiers of the Profession
    • Authors: Lybbert T; Beatty T, Hurley T, et al.
      Pages: 1253 - 1274
      Abstract: The American Journal of Agricultural Economics reached its 100th volume this year. We take this landmark volume as an opportunity to reflect on the evolution of this leading field journal—and one of the original research journals in economics. We document changes in the editorial structure of the journal—from a sole editor-in-chief to the present system of four rotating co-editors—and in the management of the publication process overseen by these editors. Using bibliometric analysis, we then track various trends in the journal over the past century. We assess changes in the structure of articles, including increased article length, reliance on mathematical modeling and empirical analysis, and the dramatic rise in collaborative publication in the form of expanding co-author teams. We also explore changes in the degree of topical specialization and the geographic coverage of research published in AJAE. We use co-authoring relationships to construct collaboration networks specific to the journal and document the striking increase in the density of these networks. We conclude with some perspectives on the implications of this century-long evolution of the journal for the coming decades of pushing and publishing the frontiers of the profession.

  • AJAE at Age 100: On Changes in Content
    • Authors: Tomek W.
      Pages: 1275 - 1276
      Abstract: The AJAE’s current content is mainly research-based articles, but it was not always so. As Buccola and Adams (1993) note, “. . . for many years . . . the Journal consisted mostly of papers selected from annual meetings.” With the passage of time, AJAE became a vehicle for publishing numerous book reviews and notes including viewpoints, comments, and replies. Opinions about controversial issues appear to have been welcome.

  • Comments for American Journal of Agricultural Economics Volume 100: A
           Century of Publishing the Frontiers of the Profession
    • Authors: Rausser G.
      Pages: 1277 - 1278
      Abstract: I applaud our four current co-editors for preparing a valuable retrospective on the AJAE, formerly the Journal of Farm Economics. In contrast to the 75th assessment of our association and our flagship journal, the current assessment provides very little in the way of prospective insights. For the assessment that was conducted 25 years ago, a number of articles were selected on a competitive basis. One of the articles by Richard Just and myself (1993) focuses on whether or not the future of the AAEA will be dramatically different over the next 75 years versus the prior 75 years. We argued that the position of the AAEA cannot be effectively assessed without examining its position within the institutions of agricultural science. The centerpiece of this establishment is the land-grant university system, one of the most successful innovations in the history of education and research. Any proposed prescriptions that we might consider, for example, changing the name of the AJAE to the American Journal of Applied Economics, would involve a further separation from this extraordinary history and institutional innovation.

  • Comments for AJAE 100th Anniversary Issue
    • Authors: Segerson K.
      Pages: 1281 - 1282
      Abstract: The AJAE has been the flagship journal in the field of agricultural economics for a century now. The trends regarding the AJAE documented in Lybbert et al. (2018) are striking but not surprising—I suspect the examination of nearly any economics journal would reveal similar trends. Nonetheless, it is useful at this point in the AJAE’s history to reflect on what might be causing those trends, and what, if anything, they mean for the journal’s impact in the future.

(2018) provides an opportunity for reflection on the co-evolution of the American Journal of Agricultural Economics (AJAE) and the agricultural economics field over the past 100 years. In particular, the article highlights the increasing importance of peer review in the publication process as the journal has gradually transformed from no peer-review in the early years to only peer-reviewed articles currently.

  • Measuring the Affordability of Nutritious Diets in Africa: Price Indexes
           for Diet Diversity and the Cost of Nutrient Adequacy
    • Authors: Masters W; Bai Y, Herforth A, et al.
      Pages: 1285 - 1301
      Abstract: Policies and programs often aim to improve the affordability of nutritious diets, but existing food price indexes are based on observed quantities that may not meet nutritional goals. To measure changes in the cost of reaching international standards of diet quality, we introduce a new cost of diet diversity index based on the lowest-cost way to include at least five different food groups as defined by the widely used minimum dietary diversity for women (MDD-W) indicator and compare that to a Cost of Nutrient Adequacy indicator for the lowest-cost way to meet estimated average requirements of essential nutrients and dietary energy. We demonstrate application of both indexes using national average monthly prices from two very different sources: an agricultural market information system in Ghana (2009–14) and the data used for national consumer price indexes in Tanzania (2011–15). We find that the cost of diet diversity index for Ghana fluctuated seasonally and since mid-2010 rose about 10% per year faster than national inflation, due to rising relative prices for fruit, which also drove up the cost of nutrient adequacy. In Tanzania there were much smaller changes in total daily costs, but more adjustment in the mix of food groups used for the least-cost diet. These methods can show where and when nutritious diets are increasingly (un)affordable, and which nutritional criteria account for the change. These results are based on monthly national average prices, but the method is generalizable to other contexts for monitoring, evaluation, and assessment of changing food environments.

  • Animal Sourced Foods and Child Stunting
    • Authors: Headey D; Hirvonen K, Hoddinott J.
      Pages: 1302 - 1319
      Abstract: Stunting affects 160 million pre-school children globally with adverse life-long consequences. While work within nutritional science suggests that stunting in early childhood is associated with low intakes of animal-sourced foods (ASFs), this topic has received little attention from economists. We attempt to redress this omission through an analysis of 130,432 children aged 6–23 months from 49 countries. We document distinctive patterns of ASF consumption among children in different regions. We find evidence of strong associations between stunting and a generic ASF consumption indicator, as well as dairy, meat/fish, and egg consumption indicators, and evidence that consuming multiple ASFs is more advantageous than any single ASF. We explore why ASF consumption is low but also so variable across countries. Non-tradable ASFs (fresh milk, eggs) are a very expensive source of calories in low-income countries and caloric prices of these foods are strongly associated with children’s consumption patterns. Other demand-side factors are also important, but the strong influence of prices implies an important role for agricultural policies—in production, marketing and trade—to improve the accessibility and affordability of ASFs in poorer countries.

  • An Economic Model of the Evolution of Food Retail and Supply Chains from
           Traditional Shops to Supermarkets to E-Commerce
    • Authors: Lu L; Reardon T.
      Pages: 1320 - 1335
      Abstract: Food retail has been in continuous evolution for the past century—both in developing and developed countries—from local traditional stores to supermarkets to e-commerce. In this paper we analyze the evolution of food retail by building a store choice equilibrium model and providing an illustrated discussion. The patterns in retail in any given time and place of different types of stores (such as traditional shops, supermarkets, and online e-commerce) depend on two main factors. The first are consumers’ characteristics such as income, tastes, and travel costs of going to different stores and/or shipping costs if purchasing online. The second are the stores’ cost structures, which include item costs from upstream producers, the costs of procurement supply chains (beyond the cost of the item) for perishable items, and the costs of in-store storage. We show under what conditions in equilibrium the different retail types exist and which can become dominant, and what types of goods (dry packaged foods versus perishables) are distributed by what type of retailers.

  • Economic Distress and Labor Market Participation
    • Authors: Stephens H; Deskins J.
      Pages: 1336 - 1356
      Abstract: Many of the most deeply and persistently distressed regions of the United States, such as parts of West Virginia, suffer from extremely low levels of labor force participation. These are regions where economic despair seems to have taken hold for generations and which face numerous other impediments to economic prosperity, such as opioid abuse. Better understanding these linkages can lead to policy solutions to help the most disadvantaged places break the cycle of economic despair. Using county-level data, we begin by estimating a series of models that allow us to understand the drivers of local labor force participation. We also consider how these drivers may differ between rural and urban areas. We then analyze how levels of participation in the labor force are related to other measures of economic distress. We find that there is significant variation in the drivers of rural and urban labor force participation; however, much of the variation can be explained by known factors. Yet, our results also suggest that there remains some portion of the lower levels of labor force participation in West Virginia and Appalachia that cannot be explained by other factors. Since it appears that labor force participation is important to explaining higher levels of employment growth in rural areas, for persistently distressed regions, finding ways to increase labor force participation may be a critical step toward increasing economic prosperity.

  • Wage and Employment Growth in America’s Drug Epidemic: Is All Growth
           Created Equal'
    • Authors: Betz M; Jones L.
      Pages: 1357 - 1374
      Abstract: The rise in drug overdose deaths in the United States since the turn of the millennium has been extraordinary. A popular narrative paints a picture whereby opioid overdoses among white, male, less-educated, rural workers have been caused by reduced economic opportunities borne by such people. In this article, we causally test the validity of this theory by using Bartik-type variables to explore the relationship between local economic conditions and county opioid overdose death rates. We add to the literature by exploring how both employment and wage growth in different types of industries are related to opioid overdose deaths for the population as a whole, as well as for rural (vs. urban), male (vs. female) and white (vs. black) populations. We find mixed evidence. Our results confirm that wage and employment growth in industries more likely to employ low-skill workers are important protective factors for rural, white males. However, we also find evidence that economic improvements in low-skill industries are just as important in protecting blacks and women against opioid overdoses, and for workers in metro counties. We also find evidence that employment growth in high-paying industries has led to increases in opioid overdoes rates.

  • Trade Liberalization and Constraints on Moves to Protectionism:
           Multilateralism vs. Regionalism
    • Authors: Sheldon I; Chow D, McGuire W.
      Pages: 1375 - 1390
      Abstract: In this article, two key questions are asked: why has the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and its predecessor the World Trade Organization (WTO) worked in terms of multilateral tariff reduction and promotion of global trade, and to what extent will it act as a constraint on economic nationalism' To answer these two questions, three themes are laid out in the article: first, the seminal economic model rationalizing the economic logic of the GATT/WTO is assessed; second, the perceived relevance of the GATT/WTO in a world of increasing regionalism is discussed; and third, the robustness of the GATT/WTO legal framework and dispute resolution mechanism is evaluated. The key conclusion is that the underlying economic logic of the GATT/WTO is still relevant, but that enforcement of the cooperative agreement will likely be placed under significant strain with the threat of increased protection, and even a potential trade war.

  • The Impacts of Tax Reform on Agricultural Households
    • Authors: Beckman J; Gopinath M, Tsigas M.
      Pages: 1391 - 1406
      Abstract: Estimates of tax reform’s impacts usually concentrate on macroeconomic impacts, but attention at the industry or sectoral level is often limited. Our study uses a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model to estimate the disaggregated impacts of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2018, which lowered personal and corporate tax rates. Focusing on agriculture, we use survey data to calculate how the TCJA would change the tax rates faced by farmers at the sector level. We use Internal Revenue Service data to calculate tax rates for all other producers. We then simulate the economy-wide and sectoral effects of TCJA. We find that the TCJA would cause a reduction in agricultural output as resources would be reallocated to other sectors. Using our survey data, we extend the CGE results to measure the impacts to farm households—from changes in on- and off-farm income. We find that most farm households would have income gains from tax reform. Our tax reform scenario highlights the fact that investment weighs heavily on model results. That is, firms that are attractive to domestic and foreign investment have gains in demand for their products, while other sectors, such as primary agriculture, experience decreases in production. A sensitivity analysis that reduces the attractiveness of the United States in foreign investment shows smaller impacts of TCJA, especially for macroeconomic variables.

  • Information Access, Conservation Practice Choice, and Rent Seeking in
           Conservation Procurement Auctions: Evidence from a Laboratory Experiment
    • Authors: Banerjee S; Conte M.
      Pages: 1407 - 1426
      Abstract: Existing research emphasizes the sensitivity of conservation auction performance and bidder behavior to auction design choices, as these auctions are not incentive compatible, meaning rent seeking must be controlled. Procuring agencies must decide how to provide bidders with information about the environmental quality of different conservation practices to manage the trade-off between an increased probability of selecting the optimal practice and increased rent-seeking behavior associated with this information. We use an induced-value laboratory experiment to explore how access to quality information and variation in the bid-submission protocol can best be combined to improve auction performance. We find that the auction performs best when a bid-menu format, in which participants submit bids for all their practices, is combined with information about the environmental quality rank of available conservation practices.

  • Effectiveness of Food Subsidies in Raising Healthy Food Consumption:
           Public Distribution of Pulses in India
    • Authors: Chakrabarti S; Kishore A, Roy D.
      Pages: 1427 - 1449
      Abstract: This paper provides evidence on the effectiveness of one of the most common policies to improve nutrition among the poor, that is, a food subsidy. We study the case of subsidies on pulses in select Indian states and their impact on consumption and ultimately nutrition (protein intake). As a natural experiment, we use the introduction of pulses into India’s Public Distribution System (PDS) where the variations in prices were brought about by the inclusion of pulses in the PDS in some states and not in others. Our difference in difference (DID) estimates show that change in the consumption of pulses because of their inclusion in the PDS, though statistically significant, was of a small order. The impact was not large enough to bring about any sizable difference in consumption of pulses or the total protein intake. The results withstand several robustness checks including randomized inference and triple differencing based on location and other consumer characteristics.

  • Reference-Dependent Hedging: Theory and Evidence from Iowa Corn Producers
    • Authors: Jacobs K; Li Z, Hayes D.
      Pages: 1450 - 1468
      Abstract: We develop a theoretical model of optimal hedging that nests expected utility and expected target utility theories. We use this model to characterize optimal hedging with and without reference price dependence. The model’s theoretical predictions are tested with a unique database consisting of every forward contract written with a major grain marketing firm by Iowa corn producers over a five-year period. Our results suggest that a current December futures price higher than a reference price triggers hedging activity. A likely candidate for producers’ reference price is a rolling average of the current futures price. We then use trading activity implied by the producers to determine if they benefit from the way they hedge. The evidence is mixed. Finally, we compare the producer forward contract data to the only publicly available data on producer hedging: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission Disaggregated Commitment of Traders Report (DCOT) for Short Hedgers. A hedge ratio constructed from the open interest in new futures contracts of the DCOT report is highly correlated with the producer hedge series in the Iowa data, providing evidence that DCOT data represent farmers’ hedging behavior reasonably well. This work has important implications for future research that uses the DCOT data, and provides new evidence about producers’ hedging behavior that marketing specialists and extension agents can use to enhance their educational efforts related to risk management.

  • Input Use under Crop Insurance: The Role of Actual Production History
    • Authors: Mieno T; Walters C, Fulginiti L.
      Pages: 1469 - 1485
      Abstract: The impact of crop insurance on changes in input use has attracted much attention by economists. While there are a number of studies on this topic, they frame moral hazard in inputs use in a static model. However, when agricultural producers are forward-looking, they would make input allocation decisions realizing that their decisions would affect their future actual production history. This, in turn, affects the probability and size of future indemnity payments. Thus, moral hazard should be framed in a dynamic input use decision model. We first show theoretically that under certain feasible conditions, a static analysis always results in lower optimal input use when compared to a dynamic one with endogenous actual production history. This is because static models fail to recognize the role of actual production history. We then run numerical simulations using nitrogen application rates as a case study. We find that static models indicate significant reduction in nitrogen use compared to the no-insurance scenario, whereas the dynamic models with a role for actual production history indicate almost no reduction in applied nitrogen. The dynamic analysis not only suggests a near absence of moral hazard, but, for low coverage rates, it results in an optimal nitrogen rate higher than that under the no-insurance scenario. These findings illustrate the importance of recognizing the role of actual production history in mitigating moral hazard possibilities in crop insurance and the dynamic nature of moral hazard in crop insurance.

  • Estimating Willingness to Pay for E85 in the United States Using an
           Intercept Survey of Flex Motorists
    • Authors: Pouliot S; Liao K, Babcock B.
      Pages: 1486 - 1509
      Abstract: Compliance with the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) in the United States will require price incentives for a substantial number of motorists with flex-fuel vehicles to switch to high ethanol-gasoline blends. Existing estimates of motorists’ willingness to pay for high-ethanol blends use data from Brazil, data generated when prices greatly favored low-ethanol blends, or stated preference data collected from mail and online surveys. We conducted an intercept survey of flex motorists as they refueled in five U.S. states. We overcome the problem caused by sample prices favoring low-ethanol blends by augmenting revealed preference data with stated preference data. A sample-selection problem arises because motorists with high willingness to pay seek out the relatively few stations that sell high-ethanol blends. We use responses from two questions to inform sample selection. We find the average U.S. motorist requires a substantial discount to switch to high ethanol blends beyond the price that equates the cost per mile of driving.
