2017 Short Course in Dynamic Global Trade Analysis

Dynamic Modeling and Applications in Global Economic Analysis

This course is intended to introduce users to the Dynamic GTAP Model (GDyn). The course consists of a mixture of online and onsite instruction. The online course lasts seven weeks and introduces the participant to GDyn. The online course is designed for self-paced learning; however, there are five homework assignments which are individually graded. During the one-week onsite course, there is a mix of daily lectures, lab assignments, and informal discussions designed to introduce participants to the basic features of the GDyn Model. These activities culminate in a major application undertaken by small groups and presented on the final day of the course. Groups are assigned an instructor who is intimately familiar with their project to act as a resource person. Our goal is for participants to leave with the capability of conducting and analyzing their own dynamic simulations using the GDyn Model.


  • To introduce participants to a dynamic model designed for conducting global trade analysis in an applied general equilibrium setting
  • To provide participants with ample hands-on training with software that has been tailored for undertaking analysis using a dynamic recursive model
  • To give participants the opportunity to interact with economists working on global trade and resource use issues using a dynamic modeling framework
