Formatted abstract The EC's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has and continues to generate much friction in the world's agricultural markets. Australia has been a strong opposer of the EC's protectionist agricultural policies on the grounds that these policies inflict on Australia (and other agricultural exporting countries) substantial income losses. These losses are incurred as a result of the CAP effectively depressing world prices, and increasing competition in third markets by the use of export subsidies. This paper attempts to estimate the costs of the CAP imposed on the EC and on Australia, using the topical example of the EC's wheat policy. The future of the CAP is later examined with the purpose of assessing the prospects of the Australian wheat industry.
