Have Price Linkages in the World Market of Cotton Improved over the Last Decade?

John Baffes and Mohamed Ajwad


This paper examines the degree to which cotton prices are linked and also tests whether such price linkages have improved over the last decade. It concludes that while some cotton markets are well-linked others are not. The degree of linkage has improved over the last decade while the main source of this improvement appears to be a result of short-run price transmission rather than long-run comovement.
