Checking negativity condition in demand system model

Let's assume you want to estimate a demand system model, e.g. the AIDS, based on observational data. Then you usually test first whether the homogeneity and symmetry condition hold in order to check ...

Is it possible to get a demand function as function of income and utility from this log linear indirect utility?

I have this indirect utility function: $$v=-c\frac{p^{(-β+1)}}{(-\beta+1)}+\frac{y^{(-\gamma+1)}}{(-\gamma+1)}$$ with constraint Y = c + pq I have posted before about getting the utility function from ...

What the name of a demand function that is both a function of income and utility?

I am working with a model that includes a demand function that follows this proces: We have utility function and budget constraint. Good x1 has price p and good x2 is normalised. p = dU/dx1/dU/dx2 ...

How to test parameter restriction in seemingly unrelated regression using STATA?

Given constrain 1: [w1]ln_p2 = [w2]ln_p1 I estimate an Ideal Demand System using surge command in STATA w1 = a1 + g11 (ln_p1) + g12 (ln_p2) + b1(real_income) w2 = a2 + g21 (ln_p1) + g22 (ln_p2) + b2(...
