Third, suppose the farm assistance were to be provided via, say, input subsidies for fertilizer and water, as in fact often happens, even in poor countries. It turns out that agricultural support via input policies would be less efficient and possibly even counterproductive because it would encourage the use of only a subset of inputs rather than all farm inputs (Warr 1978). Most damning of all, manufacturers would perceive their situation as deteriorating if support for primary production were increased and, if no change in the political-economy forces had been at work, they would presumably demand a return to the status quo ante, perhaps through another hike in industrial tariffs.

Theories of political economy and public choice offer cautions against unqualified reliance on these instruments. In practice, every successful market economy is overseen by a panoply of regulatory institutions that regulate conduct in goods, services, labor, asset, and financial markets. A few acronyms from the United States will suffice to give a sense of the range of institutions involved: FTC, FDIC, FCC, FAA, OSHA, SEC, EPA, and so on. In fact, the freer are the markets, the greater is the burden on regulatory institutions.

Rather, the taxes tend to be used to develop urban infrastructure, pay officials relatively high wages, subsidize food consumption, and so on. 11 TRADE POLICY REFORM IN CONTEXT Until recently, it was widely believed that taxing primary producers for such purposes would not reduce output significantly because farm families were poor or had no alternative uses for their time, land, and other resources. Empirical studies during the past half-century, however, have shown that farmers in even the poorest settings are quite price-responsive (Askari and Cummings 1977).
