Matt HoltVirginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Agricultural and Applied Economics
Matt Holt's research is focused on estimating, testing, and forecasting systems of theoretically consistent inverse demand equations, most notably in the context of vessel-level demands for fish, and the development, application, and testing of non-linear time series models to commodity and natural resource markets. Several applications of the latter include a re-examination of the commodity terms of trade (i.e., the Prebisch-Singer hypothesis), the effects of mechanical refrigeration on perishable commodity prices in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and the role of structural change in inter-related demand equations for food items. He received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Missouri and undergraduate and masters degrees from Purdue University. He was named a fellow of the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association in 2009. Matt has held positions at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, North Carolina State University, University of Arizona, Purdue University, University of Alabama, and Virginia Tech, where he is currently head of the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics.
