This module on gravity equations is composed of a literature review summarizing the key points and references you have to know when interested to estimate a gravity equation and a set of illustrative STATA program used to perform such estimations.

Different from many single-commodity partial equilibrium models, the Export Restrictions And import Tariffs Overall impacts (ERATO) model illustrates how a multi-market model can be used to analyze trade policy options in a context of a multi-product value chain. It can also be used to study different productivity shock or tax changes in a sectoral value chain. The ERATO model is a member of the MUlti Sectoral partial Equilibrium models (MUSE) developed for the AGRODEP Consortium.

The TASTE program has been designed to allow a large number of users to analyze existing trade policies and perform tariff scenarios. It is based on the MAcMap-HS6 database (version 2, baseyear 2004). It addresses several needs in terms of trade policy analysis. Among them:

DREAM, or Dynamic Research EvaluAtion for Management, is a menu-driven software package for evaluating the economic impacts of agricultural research and development (R&D). Users can simulate a range of market, technology adoption, research spillover, and trade policy scenarios based on a flexible, multi-market, partial equilibrium model.

Family: single-country computable general equilibrium model
Spatial Extent: national
Time:

The PEP 1-1 model (1 period – 1 country) is a static general equilibrium model that emerged from a collaboration between Bernard Decaluwe, André Lemelin, Véronique Robichaud, and Hélène Maisonnave. The model is designed for the study of an archetypal national economy. It will enable researchers to develop a relatively standard model and apply it easily to their own country, whatever the particular structure of their social accounting matrix (SAM).

Spatial Extent: national
Time:

The PEP 1-t model is a recursive dynamic general equilibrium model. It follows the PEP 1-1 single-country, single-period model that emerged from a collaboration between Bernard Decaluwe, André Lemelin, Véronique Robichaud, and Hélène Maisonnave. The model is designed for the study of an archetypal national economy. It will enable researchers to develop a relatively standard model and apply it easily to their own country, whatever the particular structure of their Social Accounting Matrix (SAM).

Time:

The standard GTAP Model is a multiregion, multisector, computable general equilibrium model with perfect competition and constant returns to scale. Innovative aspects of this model include: (i) the treatment of private household preferences using the non-homothetic CDE functional form and (ii) the explicit treatment of international trade and transport margins. Bilateral trade is handled via the Armington assumption. A global banking sector intermediates between global savings and consumption.
