AN ECONOMIC STUDY OF A REGULATED SUBSECTOR: SUGAR IN SPAIN

The objectives of this paper are five-fold: 1) it represents an attempt to describe the problems, issues, and policies related to the Spanish sugar subsector, and, to put together and organize some facts about its functioning; 2) finding sugar demand and supply relationships at the provincial and regional levels respectively; 3) some extrapolations of past trends in sugar consumption and sugar-beet production will be made in order to project long run levels to 1980 and 1985; 4) to find the area, or areas, which may be considered as the "main consuming areas" or places with "the largest sugar deficit" from which to compute the "threshold", "variable levies", and at-the-port-differentiated prices in an economically efficient way; and 5) to find whether there is any regional comparative advantage in terms of transportation costs.
