"Using continental grids to improve our understanding of global land supply responses: Implications for policy-driven land use changes in the Americas"
by Villoria, Nelson B. and Jing Liu

Global economic models with explicit treatment of global land markets are crucial to understanding the consequences of di fferent policy choices on global food and environmental security. However, these models rely on parameters for which there is little econometric evidence. A fundamental parameter in these models is the land supply elasticity. We provide a novel set of land supply elasticities estimated using gridded data for the American continent, and we use them in exploring previous work on the indirect land-use e ffects of US ethanol policy. Our estimates provide a basis for better-informed simulations of global land-use transitions under diff erent economic and policy scenarios.
