Trade Policies, Health Care and Social Welfare: A General Equilibrium Analysis

By Tonmoy Chatterjee and Kausik Gupta


This paper attempts to cater the impact of changes in trade policies on the volume of a non-traded health care of a developing economy. In this article we have framed a hybrid type of three sector general equilibrium trade model, where first two sectors form a Heckscher-Ohlin nugget and the third one is a non-traded health service producing sector. Overall, we find little harm from trade, and potential gains from welfare aspects.

Topics: D58 - Computable and Other Applied General Equilibrium Models, F11 - Neoclassical Models of Trade, F21 - International Investment; Long-Term Capital Movements, I10 - General, I11 - Analysis of Health Care Markets
