Applied Methods for Trade Policy Analysis : A Handbook
Applied Methods for Trade Policy Analysis provides a comprehensive introduction to the applied economic modeling of trade policies. The book introduces the reader to trade policy concepts, welfare measurement, accounting frameworks, and both partial and general equilibrium modeling approaches. It first covers these topics at a basic level and then introduces the reader to a number of more advanced topics: imperfect competition, dynamic modeling, labour market structure, and environmental modeling. Economic graduate students, professors, and policy makers will find the collection to be an important reference tool.
