Recent Research Interests

I study welfare effects of international trade and trade policy mainly by applying an oligopoly model. While the existing literature on oligopolistic trade has largely been based on a partial equilibrium model, I reexamine the welfare effects of trade by fully taking into account the general equilibrium effects. To this end, I am interested in the ‘General Oligopolistic Equilibrium (GOLE)’ model of Peter Neary (Oxford University), whose applications have recently been published in academic journals.
