"Deep Integration and Trade-Productivity Links: Tentative Lessons for CGE International Trade Models"
by Robinson, Sherman, Mary Burfisher, Scott McDonald and Karen Thierfelder


Abstract
Currently, single- and multi-country models do not, and cannot, Incorporate any of the elements of deep integration that recent research at the micro level indicates might underlie potential trade-productivity links. Such links are incorporated in a very ad hoc fashion, if at all, in current CGE models. This paper will discuss limitations of existing models, including implementation of the Armington approach, and briefly discuss possible new approaches to modeling trade-productivity links.

This paper would also survey recent econometric work at the USDA/ERS estimating the relationship between agricultural value added and a lot of variables that capture agricultural policy, as well as general institutional and infrastructure characteristics of different economies.

This work allows us to explore trade-productivity links in agriculture, with possible lessons for incorporating such links in CGE models.
