Economic Influences of the Domestic Clothing Industry on U.S. and African Cotton Markets

While enrolled at Kenan-Flagler Business School, I presented this paper with my co-author Ramon Vasconcellos at the Northeast Business And Economics Conference in 2007.

The purpose of this essay is twofold: 1) examine the effect of US cotton subsidies on all stakeholders; 2) analyze, qualitatively and quantitatively, the influence of the U.S. clothing industry on the demand for both domestic and imported raw cotton.
