Liberalizing Egypt's Agriculture: A Quadratic Programming Analysis

Hans Lofgren

Journal of African Economies, 1993, vol. 2, issue 2, 238-61

Abstract: Using a quadratic price-endogenous programming mode, this study analyzes the liberalization of Egypt's agriculture through a case study of the Minoufia governorate based on 1986-87 data. The results suggest that the introduction of international price equivalents and relaxed cropping constraints would lead to significant increases in farmer incomes and in the economic return to sector sources. However, the relative income gap between small and large farmers would increase. Copyright 1993 by Oxford University Press.
