BASIC GRAINS IMPORTS AND DOMESTIC PRICE IN MÉXICO : AN INVERSE-DEMAND SYSTEM APPROACH

Abstrac


In this article, the reducing effect of imports on prices of five basic products is estimated: rice (Oryza sativa), bean (Phaseolus vulgaris), maize (Zea mays), sorghum (Sorghum spp.), and wheat (Triticum aestivum). After applying an inverse-demand system, the results show that this effect is lower than one, in proportional terms, and therefore a policy of price regulations based on imports turns out to be costly in expenditure.

Palabras clave: Zellner estimators, price flexibility, distance function, Free Trade Agreement.
