Structural Shifts in Demand for Meats: Taste or Quality Changes?

The purpose of this paper is to examine the hypothesis that unexplained structural shifts in demand for meats can be attributed to quality changes in the composition of meats consumed. The next section develops a framework for studying quality changes in commodity demands. The final section uses this framework to determine the relative importance of quality changes in explaining observed structural shifts in demands for beef, pork, and poultry.
