The first of Agrimoney’s reports, China 2017 looks at Chinese government agricultural policies, changes to them, and the consequences of this for the rest of the world.
We look at the Chinese economic miracle of the last thirty years and at the social and economic tensions this has generated. We examine China’s agricultural successes but also cover the growing challenges it faces in feeding its population. We outline the motive for China’s regime of floor prices for agricultural commodities, how these have been enacted, how they operate, and how they have grown.
We look at what economic theory predicts will be the consequences of such a regime. Now that the Beijing government is dismantling this system, we close by analysing the medium to long term impacts on the markets for rice, wheat, corn/maize, soybeans, rapeseed, and cotton.
