Reservation Prices: An Economic Analysis of Cigarette Purchases on Indian Reservations

Philip DeCicca, McMaster University; Donald Kenkel, Cornell University; and Feng Liu, Shanghai University presented their paper Reservation Prices: An Economic Analysis of Cigarette Purchases on Indian Reservations at the 2013 Fall Research Conference during the session New Evidence of the Policy Impacts on Health Behaviors.
