Chapter 3 Expectations, information and dynamics Book uri icon


  • The role of expectations in the empirical analysis of agricultural supply is examined under the assumption of separation of expectations and constraints in dynamic decision making. Extrapolative, adaptive, implicit, rational and quasi-rational, and futures-based models of expectation formation are discussed. Empirical and experimental evidence for and against various models of expectation is summarized. 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
