  1. The dependent variable is the implied relative demand shift log and the explanatory variable is the implied relative demand shift in the previous decade \(t - 1\). Presented author estimates an average of estimates of the elasticity of substitution as described in text. Standard errors are reported in parentheses beneath the estimates. Asterisks (*, **, ***) denote statistical significance at the 10, 5, and 1% levels
