Christ (A.E.R., 1985)to have been the first to use multiple regression as an instrument of applied demand ananysis. The original calculations are replicated the comments of Benini are reinterpreted in the light of modern theory. The result of the investigation confirm that Benini can indeed be considered one of the founders of modern econometrics.
