Dr Bailey’s research interests lie principally in the area of microeconomics and production theory as it relates to agriculture. The breadth of Dr Bailey’s work includes an econometric study into the impact of Pesticide Taxation at farm level, the estimation of Enterprise Gross Margin data from FADN in the UK and Lithuania, the economics of Farm Diversification. More recent work includes the measurement of Technical Progress and the consequence of possible bias in that progress. Dr Bailey was involved heavily in assessing the farm-level consequences of possible future E.U. milk quota policy scenarios in the run-up to Mid-Term Review of the E.U’s CAP and has played an active role in projects for the E.U., under FP5 and TACIC, and for DEFRA (UK).
