DECLINING U.S. TOBACCO EXPORTS TO AUSTRALIA: A DERIVED DEMAND APPROACH TO COMPETITIVENESS

We investigate the loss of competitiveness of U.S. tobacco leaf exports in Australian cigarette manufacturing using industry-level time-series data. We account for relative prices, distorting policies, maturation of the cigarette market and scale, changing cigarette characteristics and market structure. We provide a decomposition analysis that reveals the relative impact of these factors over time on U.S. tobacco exports to Australia.
