Abstract: This paper develops and applies a methodology to test for efficiency in interregional commodity arbitrage. The methodology is empirically manifest as a switching regression model with three regimes: efficient arbitrage, relative shortage, and relative glut. Results from application of the model to U.S. celery marketing indicate significant departures from efficient arbitrage for both California and Florida celery.
