Agricultural pricing and marketing policies in an African context : a framework for analysis (Inglês)

The paper describes an analytical framework designed to address some of the important agricultural pricing issues that frequently arise in many African countries. The paper contains a description of producer, consumer, and marketing characteristics common to African countries, presents an analytical framework designed to capture these characteristics, outlines the policy uses of the framework, and discusses a series of policy results derived from a prototype application of the framework. Two annexes complete the paper. The first contains a rigorous, mathematical description of the model. The second describes data requirements and potential sources.
