Modeling International Relationships in Applied General Equilibrium (MIRAGE) 


Modeling International Relationships in Applied General Equilibrium (MIRAGE) is a multi-region, multi-sector computable general equilibrium model, devoted to trade policy analysis. It incorporates imperfect competition, product differentiation by variety and by quality, and foreign direct investment, in a sequential dynamic set-up where installed capital is assumed to be immobile.

Key questions addressed:

  • How do trade projections effect a country’s GHG emissions?

Sample data inputs:

  • Economic and energy data from GTAP
  • GDP projections
  • Protection and tariff equivalents data from MAcMap
  • Population projections

Sample quantitative outputs:

  • Changes in economic variables such as production, production factor uses, real wages, value added by sector, real gross domestic product, real income, exports, imports, terms of trade.
