Attempts to predict farmers' responses to government policy measures through linear programming models



Attempts to predict farmers' responses to government policy measures through linear programming models



Supply management by government in agriculture Proceedings of the 12th symposium of the European Association of Agricultural Economists EAAE, May 26th-29th, 1986, Espoo, Finland: 323-330



A number of different policy measures are being used in Norway to try to maintain farmers' incomes at levels equivalent to those of industrial workers while keeping domestic supply in balance with demand. These measures include fixed prices, subsidies and quotas. This paper presents the results of a linear programming model with 20 activities and 11 restrictions constructed to see how a hypothetical income-maximizing farmer would react to changes in policy measures.
