No 21944, 2003 Annual meeting, July 27-30, Montreal, Canada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Using a highly disaggregated U.S. Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model, we analyze the distributional impacts from the commodity programs governed by the 2002 Farm Act on U.S. farm and non-farm households. The farm household impacts occur through program effects on household income, farm sector output and commodity prices. Non-farm household impacts occur through taxes and the cost of food.
