Economics of Agricultural and Wildlife Smuggling
Peyton Ferrier (au)
The U.S. bans imports of certain agricultural (ag) and wildlife goods that can carry pathogens or diseases or whose harvest can threaten wildlife stocks or endanger species. Despite these bans, contraband is regularly uncovered in inspections of cargo containers and in domestic markets. This study characterizes the economic factors affecting ag and wildlife smuggling by drawing on inspection and interdiction data from the U.S. Dept. of Ag. and the Fish and Wildlife Service and existing economic literature. Ag and wildlife smuggling includes luxury goods, ethnic foods, and specialty goods, such as traditional medicines. Incidents of detected smuggling are disproportionately higher for ag goods originating in China and for wildlife goods originating in Mexico.
