Embargoes, Surplus Disposal, and U.S. Agriculture

Alex F. McCalla, University of California-Davis; T. Kelley White, International Economics Division, Economic Research Service (ERS); Kenneth Clayton, National Economics Division, ERS

In October 1985, the IATRC was asked by USDA’s Economic Research Service to lead a congressionally-mandated study “to determine the losses suffered by U.S. farm producers during the last decade as a result of embargoes and the failure to offer for sale on world markets, commodities surplus to domestic needs at competitive prices.”

Co-principal investigators providing overall project leadership were:
