Abstract

One of the more important issues in applied international economics is the extent to which trade flows adjust to changes in income, relative prices, and exchange rates. In this article, we survey the literature on the empirical estimation of the demand for imports and exports for Japan. More precisely, this article updates earlier surveys by Stern et al. (''Price Elasticities in international Trade,'' Basingstoke, London, 1976) and Goldstein and Khan (in ''Handbook of International Economics'' (P. B. Kenen and R. W. Jones, Eds.), North Holland, Amsterdam, 1985). J. Japan Int. Econ., June 1997, 11(2), pp. 247-259.
