"Modeling the Effects of Border Tax Adjustments on Trade and Current Account Balances"
by Laborde, David and Will Martin


Abstract
It seems likely that some form of border tax adjustment will be introduced in the United States, partly because such a tax is widely seen as leveling the playing field relative to countries impose border tax adjustments on imports as part of a Value-Added Tax (VAT). The purpose of this model is to document the inclusion of such a tax in a global general equilibrium model (the MIRAGRODEP Model) and to use that model to examine the implications of such a tax for trade and current account balances. Just as with a VAT, it is unlikely that such a tax would be introduced without some modifications or exceptions, and a model allows these modifications to be taken into account in assessing particular proposals.
