THE CHANGING STRUCTURE OF U.S. TRADE: IMPLICATIONS FOR AGRICULTURE

Antonio Brandao and G. Edward Schuh

No 283989, 1976 Annual Meeting, August 15-18, State College, Pennsylvania from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: The structure of U.S. trade has undergone major changes in the post-World War II period. In this article we attempt to (1) document the major elements of that change, (2) suggest some hypotheses that may explain the change, and (3) draw some of the implications for economic policy. Of special interest in this latter regard is the apparent decline in productivity growth in U.S. agriculture and the declining support for agricultural research.
