Frontiers in Applied General Equilibrium Modeling

In Honor of Herbert Scarf

Frontiers in Applied General Equilibrium Modeling

This volume brings together twelve papers by many of the most prominent applied general equilibrium modelers honoring Herbert Scarf. The contributors discuss some traditional as well as more contemporary topics in the field, including non-convexities in economy-wide models, tax policy, developmental modeling and energy modeling. The book also covers a range of new approaches, conceptual issues and computational algorithms. An introductory chapter written by the editors maps out issues and scenarios for the future evolution of applied general equilibrium.


Review of the hardback: 'The list of contributors to this book is impressive (including the two Nobel prize winners Arrow and Heckman) and the range of topics is broad … The title of the book covers its content very well: the book is clearly aimed at readers interested in the frontiers of applied research in the field of general equilibrium models.'
