Effects of Deregulation of the Rice Market on Farm Prices in China: a Marketing Channel Model

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

The objective of this research is to analyse the effects of market liberalization and deregulation in the rice marketing channel on farm households, using information collected from three selected villages with different market access in Jiangxi Province, China. Intermediates are modelled as a state monopsonist, as oligopsonists or assumed to have no market power (perfect competition). Results indicate that rice producers benefit from market liberalization and deregulation. How much rice producers benefit depends on the degree of remaining market imperfections and the degree of market access.
