THE IMPLICATION OF PROPERTY RIGHTS FOR JOINT AGRICULTURE-TIMBER PRODUCTIVITY IN THE BRAZILIAN AMAZON

Tsunehiro Otsuki () and Eustaquio Jose Reis

No 21617, 1999 Annual meeting, August 8-11, Nashville, TN from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: This paper examines whether better property rights will increase joint productivity of agricultural and timber products in the Brazilian Amazon. Farrell output-based technical efficiency and technological progress measures are derived by using DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) for Amazonian counties and are regressed on non-discretional variables such as land title. Land title is found to significantly improve the technical efficiency.
