Biofuels, Poverty, and Growth: A Computable General Equilibrium Analysis of Mozambique AgEcon
Arndt, Channing; Benfica, Rui M.S.; Tarp, Finn; Thurlow, James; Uaiene, Rafael N..
This paper assesses the implications of large-scale investments in biofuels for growth and income distribution. We find that biofuels investment enhances growth and poverty reduction despite some displacement of food crops by biofuels. Overall, the biofuel investment trajectory analyzed increases Mozambique’s annual economic growth by 0.6 percentage points and reduces the incidence of poverty by about six percentage points over a 12-year phase-in period. Benefits depend on production technology. An outgrower approach to producing biofuels is more pro-poor, due to the greater use of unskilled labor and accrual of land rents to smallholders, compared with the more capital-intensive plantation approach. Moreover, the benefits of outgrower schemes are enhanced...

Facing the Development Challenge in Mozambique: An Economywide perspective AgEcon
Tarp, Finn; Jensen, Henning Tarp; Arndt, Channing; Robinson, Sherman; Herlberg, Rasmus.
This study responds to some of Mozambique's basic development challenges and provides qualitative and quantitative insights for policymaking from an economywide perspective. The report highlights the importance of agricultural development showing agriculture's large sectoral multiplier effects and that applying scarce capital to agriculture is generally more effective than applying it to industry and services. A novel CGE model is developed and used in a series of analyses focused on the impact and design of economic policy. Issues addressed are aid dependency, biases in price incentives facing the agriculture sector, improvement in agricultural technology and marketing margins, risk-reducing behavior and gender roles in agricultural production, and food...

GENERAL EQUILIBRIUM MEASURES OF AGRICULTURAL POLICY BIAS IN FIFTEEN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES AgEcon
Jensen, Henning Tarp; Robinson, Sherman; Tarp, Finn.
In this paper, we present a comparative analysis of the extent to which indirect taxes, tariffs, and exchange rates affected relative price incentives for agricultural production in a representative sample of 15 developing countries in the 1990s. Empirical studies from the 1980s, using partial equilibrium methodologies, supported the view that policies in many developing countries imparted a major incentive bias against agriculture. Eliminating this bias was one of the goals of policy reform strategies, including structural adjustment programs, supported by the World Bank and others; and many countries undertook such reforms in the 1990s. In our sample, general equilibrium analysis indicates that, in the 1990s, the economywide system of indirect taxes,...

PARAMETER ESTIMATION FOR A COMPUTABLE GENERAL EQUILIBRIUM MODEL: A MAXIMUM ENTROPY APPROACH AgEcon
Arndt, Channing; Robinson, Sherman; Tarp, Finn.
We introduce a maximum entropy approach to parameter estimation for computable general equilibrium (CGE) models. The approach applies information theory to estimating a system of nonlinear simultaneous equations. It has a number of advantages. First, it imposes all general equilibrium constraints. Second, it permits incorporation of prior information on parameter values. Third, it can be applied in the absence of copious data. Finally, it supplies measures of the capacity of the model to reproduce the historical record and the statistical significance of parameter estimates. The method is applied to estimating a CGE model of Mozambique.

PUBLIC SPENDING AND POVERTY IN MOZAMBIQUE AgEcon
Heltberg, Rasmus; Simler, Kenneth R.; Tarp, Finn.
Poverty reduction strategies often highlight public spending to improve health and education, focusing on investments in human capital among poorer members of society. In addition, debt relief programs such as the enhanced Highly Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) initiative often require increased spending on health and education in return for debt cancellation. Mozambique's poverty reduction strategy is closely integrated with the government expenditure program, yet up to now little is known about the extent to which public spending is targeted toward the poor in Mozambique. This paper assesses whether public expenditures on education and health are successful at reaching the poorer segments of the Mozambican population. Standard nonbehavioral...

THE ROBUSTNESS OF POVERTY PROFILES RECONSIDERED AgEcon
Tarp, Finn; Simler, Kenneth R.; Matusse, Cristina; Heltberg, Rasmus; Dava, Gabriel.
Poverty measures and profiles are used increasingly to guide antipoverty policies in low- income countries. An essential element in these analyses is the specification of a poverty line. However, there are many different methods for setting poverty lines, and different methods can yield strikingly different results, with correspondingly different policy implications. Using recent household survey data from Mozambique, this paper explores the differences that occur using the most common poverty line methodologies, the Food Energy Intake (FEI) and the Cost of Basic Needs (CBN) methods, over different levels of geographic specificity. We find that regional and provincial rankings of Foster, Greer, and Thorbecke poverty indices are not robust to the method of...
