In 1998, U.S. consumers used 9.9 million tons of sugar, 16% of which was imported. The amount of sugar imported into the U.S. is determined annually by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA), which administers the U.S. sugar program. The U.S. Trade Rep. (USTR), working with USDA, allocates shares of the tariff-rate quota among 40 countries. This report examines USDA's and USTR's administration of the tariff-quota for imported sugar (IS) and its effect on U.S. cane sugar refiners and consumers. Describes and evaluates: USDA's procedures for setting the tariff-quota for IS, and USTR's procedures f

The Government enacted quota buyouts, in 2002 for peanuts and 2004 for tobacco. Elimination of the quota programs exposed producers more to market risks and brought about structural changes at farm, regional, and marketwide levels. Since the buyouts, many peanut and tobacco farms have exited production. Freed of the planting restrictions in the quota programs, production of peanuts, and to a lesser extent of tobacco, has been relocated to regions better suited to their growth. While total acreage and prices for peanuts and tobacco have remained below pre-buyout levels, the lower prices ż alon

In moving towards, or adopting, rights-based management, how quota will be allocated is one of the earliest operational decision that fisheries administrators face and it is inevitably controversial. This report, consisting of 23 studies, describes how the initial allocations of transferable fishing (effort) or fish (catch) quotas have been done by a variety of fisheries management regimes.

People migrate to improve their well-being, whether through an expansion of economic and social opportunities or a reduction in persecution. Yet a large literature suggests that migration can be a stressful process, with potentially negative impacts on mental health, reducing the net benefits of migration. However, to truly understand the effect of migration on mental health one must compare the mental health of migrants to what their mental health would have been had they stayed in their home country. The existing literature is not able to do this and typically settles for comparing the menta
