Title: How does income affect a country's imports of agrifood?
Author: Haq, Z.; Meilke, K.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: “BRIC” is an acronym referring to Brazil, Russia, India and China. These countries are emerging markets that have an important role in the world economy. This research looks at the BRIC countries to see what ef-fect they have on global agrifood trade patterns. In low-income countries (including India), income doesn’t play a significant role in import demand. In middle and high-income countries (including Brazil, Russia, and China) income is an important determinant in trade.
