The British Columbia Egg Marketing Board: monopolistic restrictions and social costs



The British Columbia Egg Marketing Board: monopolistic restrictions and social costs



Discussion Paper Series, School of Business Administration and Economics, Simon Fraser University (80-03-1): 113



Section I briefly discusses the history of the British Columbia Egg Marketing Board (BCEMB) and its federal co-ordinator, the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency (CEMA). Section II presents evidence that competition has been severely restricted by these boards and that this has had a dramatic effect on the price of fresh (shell) eggs. Section III attempts to measure the social cost of the monopoly created by these egg boards, in terms of dollars and cost to consumers alone.
