POLICY ANALYSIS IN AN IMPERFECTLY COMPETITIVE MARKET: A CONJECTURAL VARIATIONS MODEL FOR THE FOOD MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY

The effects of government policies are analyzed in a conjectural variations model of U.S. food manufacturing.

Changes in the degree of competition may alter the magnitude of the policy elasticities. Keywords: firm behavior, market structure, imperfect competition, conjectural variations model, policy analysis, food manufacturing
