EMPIRICAL TESTS OF IMPACTS OF RATIONING: THE CASE OF POLAND IN TRANSITION

Sonya Huffman () and Stanley R. Johnson

No 21794, 2000 Annual meeting, July 30-August 2, Tampa, FL from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: This study tests hypotheses derived from the theory of rationing using data for Polish households during the transition. There are six commodity groups and virtual prices are derived for rationed goods. The evidence is consistent with the theory: larger own-price elasticities for non-rationed goods after the reform, increased complementarity and decreased substitutability.
