GTAP Events: GTAP Firm Heterogeneity Course

Objective

The GTAP-HET Course is a hands-on, fully-online course developed to provide professional economists and Masters/PhD students with the tools and skills necessary to use advanced trade theories in trade policy analysis. During the course, participants will:

  • learn about advanced trade theories such as the Melitz model of heterogenous firms, Krugman model of monopolistic competition, and Armington model with perfect competition;
  • develop skills to use the GTAP Firm Heterogeneity (GTAP-HET) Model where Armington, Krugman, and Melitz models are nested in the GTAP computable general equilibrium framework;
  • conduct trade policy experiments and interpret simulation results using the GTAP-HET Model in team-based research projects.
