The subject material of agricultural economics has either broadened and deepened and the chapters of this guide current cutting edge paintings within the box. This quantity comprises half five of the instruction manual on ''agricultural and foodstuff policy'' and follows on from quantity 2A which has chapters on ''agriculture, normal assets and the environment'' and ''agriculture within the macroeconomy''. even if agricultural economists have continuously paid cognizance to those subject matters, study dedicated to them has elevated considerably in scope in addition to intensity lately

Once policies have been introduced, the administrative costs may be relatively low, so long as producers and consumers willingly comply. But some policies create incentives for producers or consumers to break the policy rules, and there is some evidence that participants in agricultural commodity markets will respond to such incentives. 33 We need to extend our models to account for optimizing behavior in those cases where it is profitable to break the rules, or where accounting for cheating will lead to significant changes in implications of policies.
Two factors with variable factor proportions Variable factor proportions in production is more realistic and adds some interesting dimensions to the analysis. In this section, we use a market displacement model to consider policy incidence in an output market and two input markets. We can define the output as either a farm product or a retail product. In the first case, the relevant inputs would be land and other farming inputs, whereas, in the second case, inputs would include the farm product and marketing inputs.
This producer response will modify the incidence of the policy. In addition, a policy that stabilizes prices or net incomes can confer welfare gains even when there is no behavioral response, under certain assumptions about risk attitudes [see also Moschini (1984) and Innes (1990)]. Innes and Rausser (1989) suggested that these effects could be so large that the conventional welfare implications of a target price with deficiency payments are reversed: producers can be made worse off, and society as a whole, better off.
