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. The GTAP Model also gives users a wide range of closure options, including unemployment, tax revenue replacement, and fixed trade balance closures, and a selection of partial equilibrium closures (which facilitate comparison of results to studies based on partial equilibrium assumptions).
