AGRICULTURE AND THE ENERGY CRISIS: A CASE STUDY IN MEXICO

J.H. Duloy

No 284642, 1974 Annual Meeting, August 18-21, College Station, Texas from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: A general equilibrium model of Mexican agriculture is solved to evaluate the impacts on the sector of higher costs of agrochemicals and machinery operations and higher world market prices. It is found that agricultural production declines and aggregate sector incomes increase, but that the sector income distribution becomes more skewed and consumer welfare declines.
