No 21759, 2000 Annual meeting, July 30-August 2, Tampa, FL from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: A test for convergence in food tastes based on the estimation of a time-varying-parameter demand system is proposed; the test uses a notion of convergence in time series that looks at equality in the long-term forecasts of parameter estimates through cointegration techniques. An empirical application is provided.
