Trade Policy Analysis with Gravity Models - Yoto Yotov

07 - 11 Dec 2020

The goal of the course is to serve as a practical guide for trade policy analysis with the structural gravity model, i.e., the workhorse model in international trade. The course traces the evolution of the gravity model from its initial a-theoretical applications to the most recent structural developments, e.g., dynamic gravity, and it offers a comprehensive and balanced approach between theory and empirics. Rigorous theoretical exposition is combined with a series of applications and empirical exercises, including estimation of the partial and the GE effects of FTAs and MFN tariffs within the same theory-consistent framework.
