    This paper analyzes the effects of the suspension agreement of the U.S.-Mexico fresh tomatoes antidumping cases on U.S. consumers. A linear and dynamic version of an inverse almost ideal demand system is developed to estimate consumer behavior. The measure of consumer welfare – compensating and equivalent variations – is derived specifically for the inverse demand system. The variation of cross-price flexibilities obviously reduced since the minimum export price system came into effect, but consumer welfare does not seem to change much in the circumstance. The consumers’ budget share on domestic fresh tomatoes is likely to reduce and it suggests that the suspension agreement may not guarantee the profit of domestic producers either.tomato, antidumping, inverse demand, consumer welfare, Demand and Price Analysis, International Relations/Trade,

    The Korean livestock industry is currently facing the critical challenge of the market liberalization trend under the World Trade Organization. This study analyzes the consumption behavior of meat and fish products in Korea, by estimating the Linear Approximate Almost Ideal Demand System (LA/AIDS). The empirical results indicate that beef imports in Korea would increase in the future under trade liberalization. If cheap and better quality imported beef are introduced to Korean consumers, Hanwoo (Korean domestic cattle) beef would not maintain its market share. Key words: Meat, fish, trade liberalization, per capita consumption, demand, separability, and price elasticity.Meat, fish, trade liberalization, per capita consumption, demand, separability, and price elasticity., Demand and Price Analysis,

    AN ECONOMETRIC ANALYSIS OF DEMAND FOR MEAT AND FISH PRODUCTS IN KOREA

    This study analyzes the structure of Korean meat and fish product demand. The Linear Approximate Almost Ideal Demand System (LA/AIDS) is used to estimate Korean meat and fish demand. Since the expenditure term is endogenous, the three-stage least squares (3SLS) estimator is used to estimate the demand system. Empirical results indicate that beef imports would increase with increases in per capita income. If imported beef becomes less expensive as a result of the trade liberalization policy adopted by the Korean government, Hanwoo beef would not be competitive and could lose its market share. Pork and chicken would be able to maintain market shares, but most fish products would lose market shares.demand, almost ideal demand system, meat, fish, endogeneity, Rotterdam model, separabiilty, estimator, Demand and Price Analysis, Food Consumption/Nutrition/Food Safety,
