  • Some Dynamic Aspects of Food Standards
    • Authors: Swinnen J.
      Abstract: Food standards have existed since the beginning of trade and exchange, but have increased and expanded in recent years, affecting global and local value chains. This has triggered vigorous debates on the impacts on trade and development. Standards may simultaneously enhance economic efficiency and redistribute rents, complicating policy analysis and implying that “the economics” and “the politics” of standards are often hard to separate. While substantial research has contributed important insights, dynamic aspects of standards have not received much attention. I present a framework to illustrate some dynamic economic and political aspects of standards in closed and open economies. This framework integrates changes over time in preferences, implementation costs, and protectionist pressures as determinants of standards, and suggests explanations for persistent differences in food standards across countries. Hysteresis in standards can persist due to protectionist motives, even if the initial standards were not introduced for protectionist reasons. I use some historical cases to document both the persistence and adjustment of standards over time and with international integration.

  • Food and Agricultural Industries: Opportunities for Improving Measurement
           and Reporting
    • Authors: Dunn RA; Hueth B.
      Abstract: We measure one component of off-farm food and agricultural industries using establishment-level microdata in the federal statistical system. We focus on services for crop production, and compare measures of firm and employment dynamics in this sector during the 1992–2012 time period with county-level publicly available data for the same measures. Based on differences across data sources, we establish new facts regarding the evolution of food and agricultural industries, and demonstrate the value of working with confidential microdata. In addition to the data and results we present, we highlight possibilities for collaboration across universities and federal agencies to improve reporting in other segments of food and agricultural industries.

  • Capturing a Value-Added Niche Market: Articulation of Local Organic Grain
    • Authors: Baker BP; Russell JA.
      Abstract: The market for organic and locally-grown products continues to expand as consumer preferences demand them. One category that has been relatively underserved has been the market for local and organic small grains, such as wheat. Small grains provide multiple benefits to organic farms, but are underutilized because of their relatively low economic value compared to other organic crops. Small- and medium-scale producers in the northeastern region of the United States have faced challenges to produce and profitably market small grains for a whole host of reasons. Policy initiatives by New York State and GrowNYC’s Greenmarket have expanded the market for local and organic grains and fueled the revival of small grain production in the Northeast. To meet demand, it was necessary to create the full value chain including the necessary infrastructure to handle relatively small amounts of a crop ordinarily sold as a commodity and processed at an industrial scale. This case study examines the articulation of a value chain with independent—but interdependent—enterprises connected by innovative agreements and strategic partnerships. The value chain includes the owner-operator of a farm located in the Finger Lakes region of New York, a milling enterprise started as a partnership with another farmer, and a community-supported bakery, where the farmer is also a partner. The case study also demonstrates how institutions and policies can help establish new markets to meet consumer demand, how farmers and entrepreneurs can identify market opportunities, and shows the articulation of a value chain on a micro-scale.

  • Soda Taxes And The Prices of Sodas And Other Drinks: Evidence From Mexico
    • Authors: Grogger J.
      Abstract: To combat a growing obesity problem, Mexico imposed a nationwide tax on drinks with added sugar, popularly referred to as a “soda tax,” effective January 2014. Since the tax took effect nationwide, there is no conventional control group that can be used as a baseline to estimate how the tax affected prices. Instead, I make use of control commodities, that is, untaxed goods that are not substitutes for the taxed drinks. I analyze data from Mexico’s Consumer Price Index program, using the synthetic control method and a time-series intervention analysis. In both cases I employ a placebo inference approach akin to permutation inference. The estimates show that soda prices rose by more than the amount of the tax. There is less evidence that the prices of potential substitutes rose, possibly indicating that consumers did not switch to those products after the tax took effect. Some simple calculations suggest that the soda price increase could lead to a two- to three-pound reduction in mean weight, which amounts to roughly 1%–2% of mean body mass.

  • Consumer Research with Big Data: Applications from the Food Demand Survey
    • Authors: Lusk JL.
      Abstract: In three separate studies based on data from the Food Demand Survey (FooDS), which has been conducted monthly for over three years, this paper explores heterogeneity in preference across consumers in traditional demand systems, heterogeneity in preferences over time in choice experiments, and the tail of the distribution for a particular food consumption pattern—vegetarianism. Results show that elasticities of demand for food at home and food away from home vary widely across different groups of consumers defined by a priori cluster analysis based on demographic and attitudinal variables. Results from a choice experiment are found to depend on when the experiment was conducted and on the market prices prevailing at the time of the survey. Given the large sample of consumers observed over time, there is sufficient data to demographically characterize a small portion of the population—vegetarians—using traditional logit models and a machine learning method - a classifications tree.

  • Social-Optimal Household Food Waste: Taxes and Government Incentives
    • Authors: Katare B; Serebrennikov D, Wang H, et al.
      Abstract: In 2010, 21% of the total food available for consumption in the United States was wasted at the household level. In response to this waste, a number of counties and U.S. localities have instituted policies (disposal taxes) directed toward reducing this waste. However, currently there is no federal food-waste disposal tax. The aim of this paper is to establish a theoretical foundation for household food waste, and based on this theory, to determine the social-optimal food-waste (disposal) tax, along with a government incentive. The theory unravels the interrelation between social food insecurity and external environmental costs, which is not generally considered by households when they waste food. A social-optimal disposal tax and government incentive involve Pigovian mechanisms and governmental expenditures. For a zero level of food waste, the social-optimal disposable tax and government incentive approach infinity.

  • Spatial-Dynamic Complexities of Climate Challenge for Rural Areas:
           Integrating Resource and Regional Economic Insights
    • Authors: Epanchin-Niell R; Kuwayama Y, Walls M.
      Abstract: Research questions in resource economics increasingly have incorporated both the field’s traditional dynamic considerations and the spatial concerns that often are the focus of regional economics. Spatial heterogeneity in costs, benefits, or connectivity often interact with intertemporal change in contexts such as fisheries management, water allocation, invasive species control, and land use change, making spatially- or temporally-uniform polices less likely to be efficient. In this article, we examine how climate change is likely to enhance the need to incorporate spatial-dynamic approaches to address natural resource challenges. We focus our discussion on rural areas, which are typically highly dependent on natural resources and particularly vulnerable to climate change. Following a brief review of existing spatial-dynamic models in natural resource economics and the insights derived from them, we describe how climate change can bring new spatial or temporal aspects to resource management problems, or exacerbate existing resource challenges that are best characterized as spatial-dynamic processes. We conclude with three case studies that highlight how integrating resource and regional economics through spatial-dynamic modeling may improve the analysis of climate change impacts in rural areas, considering the effects on rangeland management, groundwater policy, and land use management in floodplains and coastal areas.

  • Jayson Lusk
    • Abstract: Jayson Lusk was born and raised in the Texas Panhandle. He first lived in Lockney, TX, where his father served as the local school’s band director, and then principal. After his father took a job as superintendent of schools at Wellman, TX, the Lusk family moved to that tiny farming community with a population of about 300. Jayson graduated from high school in 1993, having enjoyed the benefits of a small school that enabled participation in activities as diverse as 6-man football, one-act plays, 4-H livestock shows, and high-school calculus taught by his mom.

  • Endogenous Risk and Point-Nonpoint Uncertainty Trading Ratios
    • Authors: Horan RD; Shortle JS.
      Abstract: Point-nonpoint trading enables highly uncertain nonpoint pollution abatement to be substituted for relatively certain point source pollution abatement. Market designers use uncertainty trade ratios to address imperfect substitution between these commodities. Guidance from government agencies and other entities recommends large ratios that penalize trades for nonpoint abatement, and extant programs universally implement this guidance. Previous research has shown that the standard guidance is based on an inappropriate framing of the risk effects of substituting nonpoint for point source pollution abatement, and has demonstrated that the trade ratios should be set to encourage or discourage substitution, depending on whether the substitution is risk-reducing or risk-increasing. However, the Pigouvian pricing approach used to develop this result obscures the underlying economic calculus because it does not recognize or characterize the tradeoffs between abatement costs savings and environmental risk that must be considered in an economic evaluation of alternative ratios, and that would be key to explaining why ratios recommended by economic analysis would be preferred to received wisdom. We develop a new approach that explicitly identifies and characterizes the tradeoffs associated with the choice of ratio. The approach is examined both in first-best settings where trade ratios and initial permit allocations are jointly determined, and in second-best settings where permit allocations are taken as given. We provide a numerical analysis of trading in the Susquehanna River Basin in Pennsylvania to illustrate theory. We find theoretical and numerical support suggesting that smaller ratios may be optimal.

  • Modern Value Chains and the Organization of Agrarian Production
    • Authors: Henderson H; Isaac AG.
      Abstract: Empirical studies of agrarian production in developing countries often find that small farms possess a productivity advantage over larger farms. Eswaran and Kotwal (1986) famously derive this inverse farm-size/productivity relationship from the structure of agrarian production. The focal prediction of their model is that, in otherwise equivalent economies, a more egalitarian land distribution raises both output and producer welfare. The traditional (spot) procurement system implicit in the Eswaran and Kotwal model, however, diverges fundamentally from modern (contractual) procurement practices. We therefore develop a new model of agrarian production in order to determine whether the introduction of a modern value chain alters the welfare effects of land redistribution. The inverse farm-size/productivity relationship persists in our model, but we find that more egalitarian land distribution leads to nonmonotonic changes in producer welfare. We also find that the introduction of a modern sector can harm the laboring classes.

  • Price Elasticity of Groundwater Demand: Attenuation and Amplification Bias
           Due to Incomplete Information
    • Authors: Mieno T; Brozović N.
      Abstract: Measurement errors in both human and natural components of agricultural and environmental systems can be as much a source of estimation bias as omitted variables, selfselection, simultaneity, and reverse causality. Nonetheless, partly because of difficulties in obtaining data, there is less literature on measurement error problems than on other endogeneity problems. This article examines estimation bias in the price elasticity of groundwater consumption for irrigated agriculture on the intensive margin. The price at issue is for the energy used in pumping and pressurizing water for delivery. Lacking the precise unit irrigation cost, previous studies imputed irrigation costs. We first consider groundwater irrigation costs and identify factors that can cause measurement errors in the process of imputation under incomplete information about the determinants of irrigation costs. We follow this by systematically analyzing the potential bias caused by measurement errors, using econometric theory along with Monte Carlo simulations where appropriate. We then quantify actual measurement errors, making use of a unique dataset in which energy and groundwater consumption data are matched for individual observations. Finally, we compare regression results using exact irrigation costs as opposed to imputed ones. We find evidence of substantial measurement errors resulting in attenuation and amplification bias in the price elasticity of irrigation water consumption on the intensive margin. Our results indicate that measurement errors in irrigation costs can lead to misleading policy implications related to water and energy pricing as a tool to conserve water. We also show that estimating the energy price elasticity of groundwater use is not as straightforward as previously thought.

  • Rural-Urban Interdependence: A Framework Integrating Regional, Urban, and
           Environmental Economic Insights
    • Authors: Wu J; Weber BA, Partridge MD.
      Abstract: Economic development in rural areas affects the natural environment, which in turn affects economic growth—both rural and urban. These shared interests and feedback effects in the natural environment are increasingly recognized as important economic and political issues, and necessitate a new framework for better understanding them. This article asks why such a framework does not exist and why it should be developed. It then presents such a framework by integrating regional, urban, and environmental economic insights. The framework focuses on the interactive location decisions of firms and households and centripetal forces for concentration and centrifugal forces for decentralization. The article captures the economic and environmental consequences of rural-urban relocation and feedback effects through changes in agglomeration economies, congestion costs, natural and social amenities, and the location of economic opportunities. Results show that some feedback effects reinforce the initial forces, but others weaken them. We present two examples to demonstrate the application of the framework. The first focuses on how agglomeration economies affect the effectiveness of environmental regulation and illustrates the benefits of incorporating regional and urban economic insights into environmental policy analysis. The second example focuses on how conservation policy can create localized amenities that help resource-rich regions avoid the natural resource curse and illustrates how concepts and perspectives from resource and environmental economics can improve our understanding of regional and rural issues.

  • Do School Food Programs Improve Child Dietary Quality?
    • Authors: Smith TA.
      Abstract: This paper estimates the impact of U.S. school food programs on the distribution of child dietary quality during 2005–10. The distributional approach allows one to better understand how school food impacts children prone to low-quality diets separately from those prone to higher-quality diets. Using a fixed-effects quantile estimator, I find notable heterogeneity in the general population—school food has positive impacts below the median of the dietary-quality distribution, and negative but insignificant impacts at upper quantiles. Children demonstrating substantial nutritional needs (i.e., food insecure or receiving free/reduced price meals) exhibit positive impacts at all levels of diet quality with especially high benefits at low quantiles. Although school food programs may not benefit the “above-average” child, they do improve the diets of the most nutritionally disadvantaged.

  • Contract Farming and Food Security
    • Authors: Bellemare MF; Novak L.
      Abstract: Contract farming has often been associated with an increase in the income of participating households. It is unclear, however, whether contract farming increases other aspects of household welfare. We use data from six regions of Madagascar and a selection-on-observables design in which we control for a household’s marginal utility of participating in contract farming, which we elicited via a contingent valuation experiment, to show that participating in contract farming reduces the duration of a household’s hungry season by about eight days on average. Moreover, participation in contract farming makes participating households about 18% more likely to see their hungry season end at any time. Further, we find that these effects are more pronounced for households with more children, and for households with more girls. This is an important result as children—especially girls—often bear the burden of food insecurity.
