"The impact of NAFTA on population subgroups in U.S. labor markets: an economywide analysis "
by Rivera, Sandra A. and Ashley Winston


Abstract
This paper reports on the first step in a larger project aimed at analyzing state-level output and employment effects of the NAFTA on U.S. economic growth and structural change, conducted by the U.S. International Trade Commission and the Centre of Policy Studies. The focus of the study reported in this particular paper is to simulate and analyze the effects of the NAFTA on employment in ethnic sub-sectors of the population.

A large body of literature has documented agenda-driven perspectives on the topic, especially regarding high profile industries such as auto and textile manufacturing. Rather than focus on a partial equilibrium approach, as has much of the earlier work, this study uses simulated state-level impacts of the NAFTA obtained from the USAGE model, a highly disaggregated dynamic computable general equilibrium (CGE) model of the United States developed by the Centre of Policy Studies in collaboration with the U.S. International Trade Commission. We apply USAGE by making use of (a) additional data on Latino labor participation (b) historical data for the U.S. economy and (c) by using multiple model closures in USAGE to conduct baseline and deviation scenarios.
