Abstract

Agricultural trade negotiations are modelled using a non-cooperative and cooperative game theoretic framework. The model distinguishes between the European Union (EU), the United States (US) and a politically passive rest-of-the-world. Particular emphasis is placed on the effect of the exchange rate on the equilibrium outcome of the games. Through the use of intra-country compensation, the analysis shows that the US is able to convince the EU to adopt modest reform. With inter-country compensation the EU chooses a decreased level of protection, but does not choose completely free trade.
