The Theory of Contested Markets and the Degree of Tradedness of Agricultural Commodities: An Empirical Test in Zaire
AbstractThe theory of contestable markets is used to derive predictions of the extent to which agricultural commodities behave as traded or non-traded goods. These predictions are confirmed with Zairian data which show that there is wide variation in the response of domestic commodity prices to real exchange rate changes.
