This paper attempts to establish measures of comparative advantage of individual sectors and to assess the effect of price intervention policies on the returns to the producers in the sector. Extensive discussion is made on how government price protection policies affect domestic prices of internally tradable goods via the mechanisms of government marketing agencies, export taxes and quotas as well as import duties.
