This paper examines whether developing countries, as a group, would be better off in the absenceof agricultural protection in the industrial North and, if so, whether they should support reformsnegotiated between the major players in the Uruguay Round. Results from the Tyers-AndersonGLS model of world food markets suggest that the net effect of industrial country agriculturalprotection is beneficial to developing countries, though by only a small margin, even if its removalwere to stimulate accelerated technical change in developing countries. The same is found to betrue of partial reforms which are more palatable politically, such as quotas to reduce oversupplyin the EC. Of course, many developing countries, including those which are members of the CairnsGroup, are badly hurt by protection in the North. Unfortunately, however, they and the othermembers of that group stand to gain comparatively little from the reduction of oversupply in theEC through quotas.
