Abstract

In this study I examine the profit persistence of the entire Hungarian agriculture with dynamic panel GMM estimation. The estimated profit persistence is low (close to zero) but is significant. There are many small farmers in Hungary; this market structure is closest to the perfect competition where the abnormal profit is zero. Based on the model, companies with a fast growth rate can gain abnormal profits. Persistence is mostly reduced by the share of subsidies received, i.e. non-refundable subsidies compensate for market competition and direct economies towards equilibrium profit. Taking short and long-term risk has a negative impact on profit persistence.

Keywords: abnormal profit, profit persistence, firm performance, agriculture
