Scholarship winner Gabrielyan and three others represent AIC at American Association of Wine Economics 10th annual conference

Georgi Gabrielyan, graduate student researcher at the Agricultural Issues Center, won a scholarship from the American Association of Wine Economics to travel to Bordeaux, France, for the organization’s 10th annual meeting in June 2016, where Gabrielyan presented his award-winning work at a special AAWE Scholarship session with a lecture entitled “Wine Trade and the Economics of Import Duty and Excise Tax Drawbacks.” The paper analyzes the impact of the 2003 change in U.S. policy enabling U.S.-produced table wine to be counted as matching-eligible exports for drawback purposes.

Also representing the Agricultural Issues Center at the AAWE conference were AIC Researcher Jim Lapsley and AIC Associate Director Julian Alston, who presented a joint paper entitled “US Wine Consumption 1950-2014,” as well as AIC Principal Economic Counselor Robin Goldstein, who chaired a session on wine pricing that dealt with market segmentation, price dispersion, Veblen effects, and consumer behavior.
