Authors: Justin B. May (Department of Economics, College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA ) 
Book Description:
This book serves as an ex ante measure of the impact on Ivoirian household income that would result from any of four possible long-run cotton policy outcomes. Central among these are the discontinuation of U.S. cotton subsidies, as well as the liberalization of the heavily regulated Ivoirian cotton market. Because cotton-growing households are most prevalent in the 40th-90th percentiles of the income distribution and because every policy change considered here results in a higher Ivoirian farm gate price of cotton, the first round effect in each of the simulations is a slightly more unequal distribution of household income. The impact on aggregate household income is more significant---over 5 percent under the most generous assumptions---but still insufficient to have much influence on measures of poverty.
