Food Safety and Governance Choices digital
format: Article | RIVISTA INTERNAZIONALE DI SCIENZE SOCIALI - 2006 - 3
Year: 2006
The paper aims at analyzing organizational issues in the supply of safe food. The relationship between organizational form and level of safety does not seem, satisfactorily or systematically, to have attracted researchers’ attention. The study of the influence of the characteristics of safe food is here developed within the theoretical framework provided by Transaction Costs Economics. Behavioural uncertainty and asset specificity are taken into account in order to analyze the influence of the characteristics of food on the choice of the structure of governance. The paper proposes the idea the hybrid forms are efficiently chosen by agents and preliminary empirical evidence is provided. The study thus provides necessary premises to develop the analysis both of liability and competition within complex relationships along supply chain.

Who Bears the Burden of Common Agricultural Price Policy? The Distributive Effects of Market Price Support in the Agricultural Sector digital
format: Article | RIVISTA INTERNAZIONALE DI SCIENZE SOCIALI - 2004 - 4
Year: 2004
The EU Common Agricultural Policy has historically been articulated into public budget payments and price support measures. From the distributive viewpoint, while the former are financed through the usual fiscal policy mechanisms (largely progressive), the financing structure of market price support (burdened on the consumers of food products) envisages a possible income regressive effect (via Engel’s law). The objective of the paper is to investigate the existence and the size of this effect. To achieve this aim we combine data and information from different sources (Bank of Italy, ISTAT, OECD, ISMEA). Our results support the existence of the regressive effect.
