"EXTERNAL SHOCKS AND ADJUSTMENT POLICY IN KENYA"
by Onyango, Christopher Hugh


Abstract
The transmission of external shocks to the Kenyan economy has become more important over recent decades due to the economic and political reforms undertaken in Kenya that have deepened its integration into the global economy. This paper describes the impacts on Kenya’s household incomes and expenditures as global food and energy prices rise. We use the MYGTAP model that differentiates six representative households based on rural-urban, and poverty characteristics. Our analysis both describes the effects of external shocks on households and explores possible roles for tariff reforms and household transfers as compensatory fiscal programs.
