AN ANALYSIS OF THE IMPACT OF ENERGY PRICE ESCALATIONS DURING THE 1970'S ON HAWAII BEEF PRODUCTION AND PRICES

This paper explores the impact of the rapid energy price increases during the 1970's on beef production and prices in Hawaii by performing two simulations‘ of a quarterly econometric model of the Hawaii beef industry. With energy prices increasing at pre-oil embargo rates, Hawaii could have produced 37 percent more grain-fed beef and 46 percent less grass-fed beef in 1980, for an increase in total beef production of 7 percent.
