Abstract: Indirect land use change, an agricultural market leakage, has been a major controversy over the Environmental
Protection Agency’s (EPA) requirement for corn-ethanol to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 20 percent
relative to gasoline it is assumed to replace. This paper shows that corn-ethanol policies generate far greater carbon
leakage in the fuel market itself. Hence, corn-ethanol does not meet EPA’s threshold, regardless of ethanol policy and
whether one includes emissions from land use change.
