Research & Publications Office to host seminar on ‘Global Food Prices, Local Frictions and Air Pollution’ on 12th February

The talk will be delivered by Prof. Digvijay S Negi, Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research

5 February, 2024, Bengaluru: The Office of Research and Publications (R&P) at IIM Bangalore will host a research seminar on, ‘Global Food Prices, Local Frictions and Air Pollution’, to be led by Prof. Digvijay S Negi, Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research (Public Policy area), at 2.30 pm on 12th February 2024, at Classroom P-21.

Abstract: Can policies that distort market incentives result in negative externalities with large and widespread social costs? The research uncovers a robust relationship between global rice prices and air pollution in India. The researcher establishes that this link comes about due to higher global rice prices leading to increased agricultural fire activity in states where the government is the largest buyer of rice. In terms of mechanisms, it is observed higher global prices leading to specialization in rice cultivation in states with higher government interference but not necessarily suitable for rice cultivation. Market distortion in the form of a pre-announced national price floor supported by government procurement of surplus rice delinks local prices from local productivity shocks and links them with global price movements. This is striking, given that India’s agricultural price policy intends to insulate farmers from global price volatility.

Speaker Profile: Dr. Digvijay S. Negi is an Assistant Professor at the Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research (IGIDR) Mumbai. He obtained his PhD in Economics from the Indian Statistical Institute, New Delhi, and a Master of Economics from the Delhi School of Economics, University of Delhi.
