    About a decade ago Batchelor presented an interesting model for the export market of UK industry in the period 1948–1975. In this paper a corrected version of Batchelor's model is used to explain Dutch exports from 1962 to 1981. The results are compared with straightforward alternatives to obtain an indication of the relevance of the model in practice. Our conclusion is that the model does not explain exports behaviour better than simple alternatives. For some variables even implausible elasticities are obtained
