Last week's column described consumer behavior and the assumptions behind predicting that behavior. The key points are consumers behavior rationally (in a predictable way), they prefer more to less, their preferences are complete, and they don't change preferences without a reason. Relative prices between goods are an important factor in determining choices within the constraints of a consumer's budget.

Now the question to answer is how the agriculture and food industries responded to changes preferences and budgets have.
