"Chapter 1: Introduction"
by Narayanan, Badri and Thomas Hertel


Abstract
The goal of this chapter is to introduce readers to the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) and provide a bit of history on the data base and software which accompany this documentation. Those readers who are already familiar with GTAP may wish to briefly scan section 1.2 to get a feel for new developments in the GTAP 9 Data Base, before moving on to Chapter 2. However, individuals who have not had extensive contact with this Project will likely find that this material provides a useful lens through which to view the GTAP 9 Data Base and associated software. By reading about the historical evolution of this unique data base, one acquires not only an appreciation of how far we have come, but also a sense of what might be possible in the future.
