Linking CGE Models: Modelling the Transport Sector and Spatially Homogeneous Goods
Researchers in the field of Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) modelling have recently come up with a number of models specifically designed to study the interaction of countries and regions. These models address strategic questions like the formation of trade blocks (e.g. Kehoe and Kehoe 1994, discuss a number of CGE-models dedicated to the NAFTA trade block), the incidence of environmental taxes across nations (e.g. Whalley and Wigle 1991), or more analytical questions like whether a country like Canada can be treated as a single location (e.g. Wigle 1992).
