Summary "How do borders affect trade? Are cultural and institutional differences important for trade? Is environmental policy relevant to trade? How does one's income or wage relate to the fact that trade partners are nearby or far away?" "These are just some of the important questions that can be answered using the gravity model of international trade. This model predicts and explains bilateral trade flows in terms of the economic size of, and distance between, trading partners (e.g. states, regions, countries, trading blocs). In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in this model and it is now one of the most widely employed tools in applied international economics. This book traces the history of the gravity model and takes stock of recent methodological and theoretical advances, including new approximations for multilateral trade resistance, insightful analyses of the measurement of economic distance, and analyses of offoreign direct investment." ""Theoretical foundations and empirical estimation strategy of gravity models have significantly advanced over the last years. By tracing the history of this evolution and offering a rich sample of applications, this book will prove to be a very useful reference to both those new to the field and those in search of an up-to-date treatment of theoretical and methodological issues related to gravity models." Roberta Piermartini, Senior Economist, Economic Research and Statistics Division, WTO, Geneva"--Jacket.
