Abstract

This chapter explains the partial and general equilibrium approaches of evaluating proposed changes in trade policies. It discusses some of the empirical methods available in trade policy research that have been presented in earlier chapters. Advance references and online links are given for detailed reading. This chapter is very important for those readers who have initiated and planned their research in the field of empirical analysis of international trade policy issues. It will guide them in choosing appropriate methodology and acquiring data for their research work.
