Ethanol: Implications for Rural Communities

This paper presents an overview of the U.S. ethanol industry, its location, and the public policy umbrella that supports its growth. Then the paper analyzes what happens when a county adds an ethanol plant, demonstrates what must be done to modify input-output models to capture those effects realistically, and applies the approach to proposed plants in three counties.
