"The Impact of Developed Countries's Cotton Subsidies on the Malian Economy: a CGE assessment"
by Traore, Fousseini


Abstract
The impact of the United States and European Union subsidies on world
cotton price has been an important subject in recent years. This paper examines the impact that would have the removal of these subsidies on Malian economy (GDP, public accounts, and households’ income). The issue is adressed with a computable general equilibrium model detailing malian cotton sector. Results show a positive impact on GDP as well as on households and government income. These results are robust to systematic sensitivity analysis taking into account parameter uncertainty.
