Abstract

There is pressure in developing countries for less regulated staple food markets. Public sector parastatals are being asked to justify their operations, streamline their operations and costs and to release many of their previous functions to the private market. This pressure raises issues about the ability of private markets to take on these roles and what is the optimal parastatal operational size. The answers to these questions depend upon the level of temporal, spatial and vertical integration of the food staple markets. Applying Price Analysis to Marketing Systems: Methods and Examples from the Indonesian Rice Market is intended as a comprehensive training manual for the various methodologies available to address the question of market integration. All methods are applied in a step-by-step, easy-to-follow manner to Indonesian rice market data. The book assumes only a rudimentary level of statistical knowledge and will be of interest to researchers and organizations concerned with the assessment of agricultural market performance in developing countries.
