The processes involved in introducing or eliminating a subsidy, on the other hand, are much simpler (and presumably less expensive).

Once policies have been introduced, the administrative costs may be relatively low, so long as producers and consumers willingly comply.
The effects of combining an output subsidy with an input quota, a common policy in the United States, can be seen by combining the elements in the first and last columns of Table 3. The elements in the first column have to be adjusted to reflect the fixed supply of land, by setting el = 0, before they are added to the elements in the last column. , both quantity and producer price increase), but the magnitudes of changes are reduced by the input quota. Of course, an input quota could be set such that output is less than the competitive quantity, more than offsetting the effects of the subsidy on quantity produced.
A number of studies have considered the implications of transferable quotas for milk.
