Abstract

This paper looks at the problem of making multiple lending decisions which affect the supply of the product when the consequences of these lending decisions are interrelated via the effect on the world price of the product. This is termed the "adding up problem". It is argued that thinking of this problem from the point of view of the targeting literature helps to clarify the nature of optimal policies.
