Using occupational wage data, I compare the distributional impacts of trade in six different production sectors varying in technological intensiveness. Fixed-effect regressions specifically target two key inequality measures: the logarithmic wage premium of skilled workers and the wage spread (standard deviation) across all occupations. Note that the change in social welfare equals the sum of the welfare changes due to the tax: The controversy surrounding immigration is the distributional effects: in the short run, native workers lose, due to decreasing wages. Technological change has made agriculture in the USA and the EU enormously productive. However, it has led to Author: Andrew Barkley.

The last few decades have seen a rapid increase in corn production, making corn the most important cereal in the world. This evolution is due in large part to rapid productivity growth for corn. Both improved genetics and improved farm management have contributed to large increases in corn yield.

Climate Change and Agriculture: An Economic Analysis of Global Impacts, Adaptation and Distributional Effects Robert O. Mendelsohn, Ariel Dinar Despite its great importance, there are surprisingly few economic studies of the impact of climate on agriculture and how agriculture can adapt under a.
To answer these questions, this study estimates productivity change in China's agriculture and evaluates the effects of policy on agricultural output during the reform period. INTRODUCTION. Climate change and rising global mean temperature (GMT) with associated consequences pose a serious threat to natural systems and socioeconomic well-being ().The agricultural sector in particular is very sensitive to climate change ().Even a small increase of 1° to 2°C in GMT can have significant negative effects on crop yields, especially in the tropics (3–5).Cited by: Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

The Bank of Canada has a mandate to “promote the economic and financial welfare of Canada,” primarily through the conduct of monetary policy and promotion of a safe, sound and efficient financial system.
Understanding the macroeconomic and financial system impacts of climate change and the transition to a low-carbon economy is therefore a priority for the Bank. Abstract. Climate change impacts on agriculture are varied over space and time. The effects are heterogeneous and highly uncertain.
Innovation in agriculture is clearly an important response for effective and equitable adaptation and mitigation – and we need to rethink how to promote innovation to address the heterogeneity and uncertainty of climate change by: 5. growth, emphasizing the role of technological innovation and diffusion and risk management in successful agricultural development through growth in land, labor and total factor productivity.
The fourth volume explores the post-harvest distributional impacts of agricultural development. It has recently been argued that the fragmented knowledge on the social impacts of genetically modified (GM) crops is contributing to the polarised debate on the matter.
This paper addresses this issue by systematically reviewing 99 peer-reviewed journal articles published since on the social impacts of GM crops in agriculture; summarising current knowledge, and identifying research by: Current economic instruments aimed at climate change mitigation focus mainly on CO2 emissions, but efficient climate mitigation needs to focus on other greenhouse gases as well as CO2.
This study investigates the distributional effects of climate change taxes on households belonging to different income and lifestyle groups; and it compares the effects of a CO2 tax with a multiple GHG tax in Cited by: Downloadable.
This paper develops a theoretical model to explore the relationship between openness to trade and long-term income inequality.
Empirical evidence on the issue is mixed, though greater inequality is often cited as a possible cost of trade liberalization.
To quantify the effect of liberalization on inequality I calibrate a two-sector (agriculture and non-agriculture) open-economy. Suggested Citation:"3 Structural Implications of Technology Transfer and Adoption." National Research Council.

Resource Allocation in Agricultural Research was first published in The new knowledge produced by research has accounted for an increasing share of national economic growth in this country.
As the economic importance of research has risen, the emerging problems attendant on the allocation of resources to research has attracted increased.
The purpose of this research is to assess the welfare effects of climate change on the Chilean agricultural sector, with special focus on changes in water availability.
The productive impacts of climate change on the agricultural sector are well analyzed at both a global and national level. There is, however, a lack of evidence about the aggregated impacts, considering both demand and by: 2. This chapter addresses questions that are primarily microeconomic in nature.
Investment is required to accomplish a particular technological change, which depends critically on two things: (1) the degree of external participation in its accomplishment, and (2) the internal technological capability acquired through previous investments in by:.

Berkeley, July, WP Technological change has occurred in many crops through mechanization and the use of agricultural chemicals: over time, machines and chemicals have replaced farm workers in the USA and other high income nations.
The number of persons employed on US farms has been stable for several decades, due to two offsetting forces: (1) a large increase in.Affected individuals fall into three groups: (1) people involved directly in agricultural food production (e.g., farmers); (2) people involved in the rest of the food system (e.g., processing, manufacturing, food service, and retailing); and (3) consumers.
Food production, processing, and availability also can affect community-level measures, such as economic growth and social : Malden C. Nesheim, Maria Oria, Peggy Tsai Yih, Nutrition Board, Board on Agriculture.
