This paper analyzes the cocoa marketing and pricing policies in Ivory Coast. It looks into the cost of marketing, prices received by the farmers, and examines the producer price stabilization benefits. The authors also analyze the net benefits from a publicly run system of export sales based on forward selling and use a general equilibrium model to show the effects of reductions in export taxes and marketing costs. Six main conclusions are to be found in part IV starting from p.23.
