2024 GTAP Firm Heterogeneity (GTAP-HET) Course

Applied Policy Analysis with Advanced Trade Theories

The GTAP-HET Course is a hands-on, fully-online course developed to provide professional economists and Masters/PhD students with the tools and skills necessary to use advanced trade theories in trade policy
During the online course, participants will:

  • learn about the Melitz model of heterogenous firms, viewed as a more general version of the Krugman model of monopolistic competition, and Armington model with perfect competition;
  • develop skills to use the GTAP Firm Heterogeneity (GTAP-HET) Model where Armington, Krugman, and Melitz models are nested in the GTAP computable general equilibrium framework;
  • conduct trade policy experiments and interpret simulation results using the GTAP-HET Model in team-based research
