11th Ruhr Graduate Summer School in Economics "Trade and Climate Policy Analysis with GAMS and MPSGE / Internationaler Handel und Wirkungen der Klimapolitik"
Essen, Casino G?_stehaus, University of Duisburg-Essen, Campus Essen Universit?_tsstra??e 12, Germany
Unser Klima und der weltweite Handel ??? zwei Bereiche, die eng miteinander verzahnt sind. Denn die Kosten der Klimapolitik f?_r einzelne L?_nder und Regionen werden durch den internationalen G?_terhandel stark beeinflusst. Was bedeutet das f?_r die angewandte Politikberatung? Damit besch?_ftigt sich die Ruhr Graduate Summer School vom 28. September bis zum 2. Oktober 2015. This workshop provides a practical guideline to CGE modeling of open economies using data of the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) which includes detailed national accounts on production and consumption together with bilateral trade flows for a large number of countries. The workshop will discuss alternative approaches to study international trade in a general equilibrium framework: (i) the wide-spread Armington assumption that goods of different origin command different prices, (ii) the alternative notion of Heckscher-Ohlin that goods of different origin are homogenous, and (iii) Melitz??s new trade theory of monopolistic competition among heterogeneous firms. Numerical models for these complementary approaches to policy analysis of open economies will be developed and applied to the fields of economic integration and climate policy.
