The impact of cattle foot and mouth disease in the Brazilian economy

This paper aims to assess the economic impact of Cattle Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) outbreaks in Brazil for 2006. This is done by using an input-output system for Brazilian economy and two basic scenarios: one which considers FMD outbreaks and decreases in exports and other which considers the status change for FMD-free without vaccination. In the first scenario the results show a decrease of total output in the Brazilian economy between R$ 3.3 billion and R$ 10.2 billion, while in the second scenario the results show an increase of total output between R$ 3.8 billion and R$ 12.5 billion.
