Cooperatives and Marketing Orders
  • Marketing institutions designed to increase farmers bargaining power

Marketing and Supply Cooperatives
  • Capper-Volstead Act of 1922:
    • Established conditions under which an organization can be defined as a co-op
    • Protects co-ops from anti trust provisions of the Sherman and Clayton acts
      • Resulting in increased bargaining power
incentive problems
Incentive Problems
  • In a co-op, management does not gain or lose depending on the firm’s success
    • Residual Claimants: those that benefit or lose due to management decisions
      • Co-ops do not have these
    • Can lead management to act in a way that does not maximize the present value of the co-ops stream of future residual returns
      • More incentive to favor investments with short payoff horizons
  • With these problems, how do co-ops survive?
tax treatment of cooperatives
Tax Treatment of Cooperatives
  • Patronage refunds are counted as personal income to members, not to the co-op
    • Leads to the refunds only being taxed once
