Measuring International Competitiveness in the Beef Sector

Contents:

Author Info

Abstract

Beef is a heterogeneous commodity, which makes it difficult to compare beef prices in an international level. This paper evaluates several methods of comparing beef prices to be used in measuring both comparative advantage and protection. The most suitable method is one that compares the prices of wholesale cuts, adjusted for transportation costs.
