SOUZA, Geraldo da Silva e; ALVES, Eliseu; GAZZOLA, Rosaura  and  MARRA, Renner. The meat market in Brazil: a partial equilibrium model. Rev. Econ. Sociol. Rural [online]. 2008, vol.46, n.4, pp.1189-1208. ISSN 1806-9479.

A partial equilibrium model for the meat market is fit to Brazilian data by three stages least squares. The model is consistent with the data and may be used for simulation purposes. In this context we compare model simulations for the near future with the OECD/ Aglink outlook. To illustrate using the model for simulations in policy assessments, we investigate the effect of a relative increase in corn price on the poultry and pork markets, coeteris paribus.

Keywords : Meat markets; elasticities; three stage least squares; simultaneous system of equations.
