AGRICULTURAL SELLING CARTELS: RELATIVE CO-OPERATOR AND NON-COOPERATOR GAINS

An analytical framework is developed for assessing the relative gains accruing to co-operators and non co-operators in a cartel arrangement involving production quotas. Key parameters determining the relative gains are identified. The values of these parameters in the context of Australian agriculture could result in greater gains for non co-operators than for co-operators. Suggestions are offered on some types of information that should be sought in feasibility studies before cartels are established.
