Abstract

Allocating resources to the provision of public forecasts may be justified as a means of reducing fluctuations arising from divergent expectations. In this paper we examine certain forecasts provided by the Meat and Livestock Commission. Our results indicate that these forecasts pass a number of tests of model adequacy. In particular they appear to be unbiased and efficient.
