ASSISTING THE FORMER SOVIET EMPIRE: AN EXAMPLE OF THE FOREIGN AID CRISIS AgEcon
Zeuli, Kimberly A.; Ruttan, Vernon W..
In 1989 the revolutions in several Eastern European countries brought an end to The Soviet European empire and ultimately the Cold War. This paper examines the effect the end of the Soviet threat had on America's foreign assistance programs in general, and specifically on US attempts to aid the New Independent States (NIS) and the Central and Eastern European Countries (CEECs). Over the course of the years, America's foreign assistance programs have been motivated by a combination of national security considerations, economic self- interest, and humanitarian concerns. However, the US desire to stem Soviet expansion, first in Europe, then in South East Asia, and then in other Third World countries, came to dominate assistance policy. When the Soviet...

Challenging the Goldschmidt Theory of Rural Purchasing Patterns AgEcon
Foltz, Jeremy D.; Zeuli, Kimberly A..
This work uses unique data from three dairy dependent communities in rural Wisconsin to test established theory and empirical studies that link farm structure to local purchasing patterns and community economic development. A theoretical model of purchasing choices is developed to derive the determinants of local purchasing by dairy farms. This model is tested empirically using a double bounded Tobit model. The empirical estimations find little support for any linkage between farm size and local purchasing patterns across eleven major dairy farm inputs. The results do suggest that different community business characteristics (the supply side) and community attachment provide some explanations for diverse purchasing patterns.

Cooperative and Area Yield Insurance: A Theoretical Analysis AgEcon
Pincheira, Pablo; Zeuli, Kimberly A..
The purpose of this paper it to theoretically investigate the potential benefits that arise from a cooperative selling a government subsidized area-yield contract (i.e., the Group Risk Plan). The indemnities in area-yield contracts are triggered by a geographically determined yield (e.g, a country-wide yield average) instead of the more conventional individual actual production history. Therefore, an area-yield contract would be appropriate for managing the cooperative's systemic throughput risk. The cooperative would also capture some of the substantial government subsidies that are normally given to a private insurance company. Our primary finding is that farmers should be indifferent when considering the decisions to purchase area-yield insurance...

Managerial Incentives, Moral Hazard, and Structural Change in Agricultural Cooperatives AgEcon
Zeuli, Kimberly A.; Foltz, Jeremy D..
The federated business structure exists in many sectors of the economy, but we know little about its comparative advantage. This paper explores theoretically and empirically the current dynamics of the federated cooperative system. Two hypotheses are tested: growth at the local co-op level has made the structure redundant and managerial incentives create disloyalty. We use a unique data set from a survey of local farm supply and grain marketing cooperatives in the Midwest.

MANAGING YIELD RISK THROUGH A COOPERATIVE AgEcon
Zeuli, Kimberly A.; Skees, Jerry R..
Developing new risk management products for all agricultural commodities has increased in importance given recent legislation. Vegetables have been difficult to insure. This paper investigates the use of index contracts for growers belonging to a Kentucky vegetable cooperative. Index contracts should be significantly more efficient than current crop insurance alternatives.

Measuring the Local Economic Impact of Cooperatives AgEcon
Zeuli, Kimberly A.; Deller, Steven C..
The ability to measure the economic importance of cooperatives to communities is not purely an academic question. Policy makers, cooperative organizations, and community development practitioners are increasingly asking for such information. The most commonly used methodology is input-output analysis. The limitations of input-output analysis when applied to cooperatives have not yet been comprehensively explained in the literature, although they significantly affect the application of the model as well as the interpretation of results. We discuss five issues that need to be addressed when using input-output models and suggest additional analysis that should be completed to gain an accurate assessment of the local economic impact of cooperatives.

THE POTENTIAL FOR RECALL INSURANCE TO IMPROVE FOOD SAFETY AgEcon
Skees, Jerry R.; Botts, Aleta; Zeuli, Kimberly A..
This paper explores the food safety implications of insurance products that compensate for business losses when food contamination causes a processing firm to initiate a recall. Discoveries of meat and poultry product contamination, in particular life-threatening pathogens, are increasing. The financial losses that follow a recall can be substantial as illustrated by several recent U.S. cases – Hudson Foods, Bill Mar, and Thorn Apple Valley Inc. Additionally, contaminated food product that escapes the current recall system poses a threat to consumer safety. The conceptual analysis presented here suggests that insurance underwriters could motivate earlier recalls and more diligent implementation of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP)....

THE REVENUE RISK OF VALUE-BASED PRICING FOR FED CATTLE: A SIMULATION OF GRID VS. AVERAGE PRICING AgEcon
Anderson, John D.; Zeuli, Kimberly A..
The reluctance to adopt value-based pricing stems from a fundamental problem created by the system: increased revenue uncertainty and variability. The literature suggests that inconsistent carcass characteristics cause revenue variability under grid pricing. The possibility that the grid pricing structure, regardless of cattle quality variations, also causes revenue variability has been recognized but not fully analyzed. This study quantifies the impact of grid variability over time, pen quality differentials, and quality grade price discounts on average revenue per head for a pen of fed cattle. Grid pricing revenue results are compared to average pricing results.

WILL SOUTHERN AGRICULTURE PLAY A ROLE IN A CARBON MARKET? AgEcon
Zeuli, Kimberly A.; Skees, Jerry R..
While a carbon market offers substantial opportunities for US agriculture, regional differences in such a market are often ignored. This paper focuses on the advantages and challenges for agriculture in the South. The potential of two promising options are analyzed: conversion from cropland to forests and greater use of conversation tillage. It is argued that the right institutional arrangements can overcome three fundamental challenges to an efficient carbon market: transaction costs, risk, and perverse incentives. Some examples are given, such as the use of a farmer-owned organization and the provision of land use and carbon information by the government.
