12) The income elasticity
of demand is not the same as the income elasticity
of WTP when quantity is fixed, as it was in these studies.
Given these differing relationships between tourist expenditures and trip motives, the income elasticity
of tourist expenditures is postulated here to be relatively low with respect to motive transactions and relatively high with respect to consistent transactions.
If good 2 has a higher income elasticity

Third, we change income elasticity
of demand from its baseline value of 0.
Using expenditure shares (wi=qi/ywi=qi/y), instead of the expenditures spent on i, facilitates more directly an inference of the income elasticity
of demand from the curve's slope.
In light of this new evidence, in the discussion and tables that follow, I assume a taxable income elasticity
A more detailed explanation of the procedures necessary for price estimation and income elasticity
are explored elsewhere by Ramos-Carbajales and colleagues (17).
The high income elasticity
for the demand suggests that focus should be on raising the factors which can help in expansion of textile and clothing products in local market and marked countries.
