Abstract

The results indicate that a dynamic specification of the AIDS model is superior to the static AIDS model. The separability test for both the static and dynamic AIDS models conclude that imported meat consumption is non-separable from the U.S. consumption so domestic meat should be included in the analysis of U.S. import meat demand.
