Generalized habit formation in an Inverse Almost Ideal Demand System: An application to meat expenditures in the U.S.
The Inverse Almost Ideal Demand System (IAIDS) model of Moschini and Vissa (1992) and Eales and Unnevehr (1994) is extended to include: (1) general, nonlinear, nonadditive habit effects; and (2) aExpand
A Food Demand System Estimation for Rural Malawi: Estimates Using Third Integrated Household Survey Data
In contrast to the myriad of empirical work on food demand in other countries, very few studies have considered zero expenditures on some food groups. Those which have attempted have been based onExpand
Preference formation, incomes, and the distribution of welfare
Although economic models are usually built upon the assumption that tastes are immutable, this does not mean that economists actually believe this to be true. It is rather the case that the modelingExpand
An analysis of consumer expectation effects on demand in a dynamic almost ideal demand system
Abstract A theoretical framework is presented for analyzing psychological, perceptual, or expectational effects on household expenditure within a complete demand system that is also consistent withExpand
The demand for domestic services, capital services, wife's home time, and other inputs: an econometric analysis of technical and other changes affecting U.S. households, 1900-1985
The primary purpose of this study is to examine the long-term changes in household production caused by technical and other changes in the United States. The household production model was employedExpand
Modelling Sri Lankan consumption patterns using error corrected LA-AIDS
Abstract Static-demand systems used in empirical studies are based on the assumption that consumers immediately and fully adjust to a new equilibrium when either incomes or prices change. In reality,Expand

Estimation of the Linear Expenditure System
In this paper we estimate a complete system of demand equations making full use of the restrictions implied by economic theory. Our theoretical model is based on the Klein-Rubin linear expenditureExpand
