Abstract

Subsidies for nonprice export promotion can harm domestic consumers by increasing price in the domestic market and by diverting funds from domestic market promotion. Taking these consumer impacts into account, we find that federal expenditures for nonprice export promotion of farm products may be too high.

Keywords: benefit-cost analysis, export promotion, international trade, subsidy
