Abstract

The degree of vertical integration in the U.S. sugar industry between raw sugar processing and sugar refining cannot be explained using theories of vertical integration based on transaction costs (e.g. Williamson). We graphically decompose the economic rents accruing to each level in the marketing channel. Different strategies of several major sugar producing, processing and refining entities with regard to sugar quota policy are explored.
