POLICY PROGRAMMING FOR MEXICAN AGRICULTURE: Domestic Choices and World Market Conditions

This paper presents an agricultural policy model for Mexico. The model can relate the impacts of government pricing policies on production, consumption, and trade, to government objectives for agriculture, like farm employment, net foreign exchange earnings, sector income, and food self-sufficiency. The model's multilevel mathematical programming technique can be used to identify tradeoffs among policy goals and can help policymakers choose the instruments best suited to realizing their goals. The model can also illustrate how changes in world market conditions might alter the tradeoffs and the choice of policy instruments.
