  Subsidy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In economics, a subsidy is generally a monetary grant given by government to lower the price faced by producers or consumers of a good, generally because it is considered to be in the public interest.
Subsidies protect the consumer from paying the full price of the good consumed, however they also prevent the consumer from receiving the full value of the thing not consumed – in that sense, a subsidized society is a consumption society because it unfairly encourages consumption more than conservation.
Subsidies are paid for by taxation which creates a deadweight loss for that activity which is taxed.

 subsidy. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Subsidies were used in England in the later Middle Ages, when Parliament granted funds to the king to augment or replace customs and other taxes collected by royal prerogative; such early subsidies later became the means by which the power of taxation was taken from the king and lodged in Parliament.
Subsidies have also been granted by one country to another country to aid it in pursuing a war effort, to gain its goodwill, or to help stabilize its economy.
Very similar to a subsidy is a bounty, except that it usually takes the form of a per-unit premium or reward for a service already performed.

 Adoption Subsidies - New York State Adoption Service - New York State Office of Children and Family Services
Maintenance subsidies continue until the child is 21, unless the adoptive parent is no longer legally responsible for the support of the child or the child is no longer receiving any support from the adoptive parent.
Subsidies are provided to help meet the special needs of caring for handicapped and hard-to-place children and to encourage and facilitate their adoption.
Subsidies are provided as part of the adoption process in over 80 percent of cases; therefore, it is important that the application process should be familiar to caseworkers.

 Subsidy Estimates for FHA Mortgage Guarantees
The subsidy estimate for each cohort is calculated on the basis of the contract terms of the loan guarantee and the economic forecast used to project future loan terminations from prepayments and defaults.
Yet the probability that the actual subsidy could be positive (and therefore costly to the government) is only 5.3 percent (53 of the 1,000 estimates), as indicated by the small area under the curve to the right of zero in Figure 1.
In general, the distribution of subsidy estimates is a useful supplement to the mean-value point estimate because it indicates the range of outcomes consistent with past experience as well as the likelihood of favorable and unfavorable results.

The subsidy won't be paid for another two years, but the Financial Accounting Standards Board of Norwalk, Conn., gave permission Wednesday for companies to book the value of their anticipated government payments in 2003 financial statements, if they believe they can accurately predict the effect of the subsidy.
The subsidy will be significant at companies with thousands of retirees ages 65 or older, because prescription-drug costs make up a large part of the expenses that employers incur for seniors under their retiree medical plans.
So if an employer and a retiree each pay $1,000 toward the retiree's medical costs, the employer's subsidy is calculated on the full $2,000, bringing the company a total subsidy of $490, rather than the $210 that it would get if it received a subsidy only on its share.

 Earth Track
Subsidies are government-provided goods or services, including risk-bearing, that would otherwise have to be purchased in the market.
To the extent that natural resource intensive industries are located in the region receiving the subsidy (for example, corporate tax rate reductions in a large, oil producing region), policies can encourage incremental pollution and the development of “subsidy clusters” that rely on continued subsidization to survive.
For example, while subsidies act to distort energy markets in favor of oil, certain fees may have the opposite effect, and are properly treated as offsets to subsidies.

 UB Reporter: Subsidy war could harm Boeing more than Airbus, UB researcher says
The Airbus subsidy is in the form of repayable loans with interest for aircraft development, which is legal according to the World Trade Organization, Pritchard says.
The Boeing subsidy, on the other hand, is for aircraft production, which is prohibited by the WTO and which never will be paid back, he says.
According to their research, subsidies received by Airbus for manufacture of its new A380 jetliner are legal under the 1992 US-EU Agreement on Trade in Large Aircraft and the 1994 WTO-Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures, which allows for receipt of a loan—repayable with interest—to be used for aircraft research and development.

 Economic Incentives...Key Issues in Subsidy Policies and Strategies for Reform   (Site not responding. Last check: )
One concrete way to create more transparency on subsidies is to develop an informational framework on subsidy policies and evaluating subsidies regularly and introduce a burden of proof for their need and implications.
Although subsidies often do not serve their ends, the original objectives may remain valid although they need to be addressed more cost-effectively by better targeted policies (see for instance box 5).
Direct subsidies are the least distortionary as regard their impacts on resource allocation and the extent to which they deter trade, while they generally accrue to the intended recipients far more than other forms of support that show greater leakages.

Subsidy publishing (the author's paying a publisher to produce a book for him) is an investment with the prospect of little or no return.
A major factor that distinguishes subsidy publishing from self-publishing is that in the subsidy business, ownership and distribution of the book belong to the publisher, while in self-publishing, they belong to the author.
Subsidy publishers advertise in newspapers and magazines and will discuss details during in-person interviews with authors in various cities their salespeople visit.

 Credit Subsidy Reestimates, 1993-1999
Interest rate reestimates correct the projected subsidy for the difference between the discount rate (the interest rate used to calculate the present value of a future stream of receipts and spending) that was assumed in the initial estimate and the actual rate prevailing when the credit is disbursed.
Agencies may also have a more fundamental incentive to underestimate subsidies for both mandatory and discretionary credit programs: to the extent that agencies are advocates for their programs, they may be inclined to understate costs to reduce a program's visibility and attractiveness as a target for budgetary savings.
The percentage-point changes in the subsidy rate because of technical or default reestimates were generally larger than the changes because of total reestimates: 1992 cohort, -3.48; 1993 cohort, -3.95; 1994 cohort, -1.21; 1995 cohort, -1.20; 1996 cohort, -0.49; 1997 cohort, -1.49; and 1998 cohort, -1.14.

 Economic Incentives...Key Issues in Subsidy Policies and Strategies for Reform   (Site not responding. Last check: )
On the one hand, this discussion reflects the evolution of the subsidy concept but on the other hand, the debate has also contributed to confusion what a subsidy is and what it is not.
A subsidy was initially regarded a payment or a tax concession from the government, but later extended to include policies that create transfers through the market mechanism.
What in one country is regarded as a concession from the government and thus a subsidy, is part of the current standard in another country and surely not a subsidy.

While is it permissible to look at the child’s condition along side the family’s resources to set the monthly rate of the subsidy, it is not appropriate to disqualify a child for eligibility based on family income.
Often, parents take the agency to hearing because the agency reduced the foster care or adoption subsidy rate without due notice or if the parents finalized an adoption of a special needs child without subsidy and believe the child is (and was) eligible.
