Consumer Preferences for Fair Trade Foods: Implications for Trade Policy
Matthew Rousu () and
Jay Corrigan ()
Working Papers from Kenyon College, Department of Economics
Policymakers are considering including stricter standards in international trade agreements. Using auctions to assess preferences, we find that the median consumer places no premium on fair trade foods produced under more stringent labor and environmental standards. This indicates that current trade policies may be preferable to U.S. consumers.
