The macroeconomic effects of agricultural shocks are investigated. A decline in the price of agricultural exports can cause an income shock to the household, locality, and the nation. Positive price shocks may cause a temporary increase in the demand for financial assets. Output shocks, represented as variations in national agricultural value-added, did not affect output in other sectors of the economy.

Keywords:   agricultural shock, price shock, output shock, macroeconomic effects, insurance
