There is considerable evidence exports which can implies indeed that be both encouraged by a consistent set of measures, supply and demand are reasonably price-elastic. Import demand also responds to relative prices; it has been shown that high import dependence exchange can, to a considerable extent, be induced by overvalued rates and the prevailing tariff structures.
