Work in Progress

Deforestation: A Global and Dynamic Perspective with Elliot Kang, Heitor Pellegrina, and Sebastian Sotelo
We study the implications of trade and economic growth on deforestation from a global perspective. We build a dynamic general equilibrium model of trade and land use, in which structural change and comparative advantage determine the extent, location, and timing of deforestation. Preliminary results indicate that the global forest area would expand in response to multilateral trade liberalization in agriculture, but that it would shrink when the liberalization is experienced by individual regions.

The Climate Cost of Trade with Ahmad Lashkaripour
We examine whether international trade exacerbates climate damage, and if so, to what extent. We incorporate climate externalities into commonly-used trade models, and propose sufficient statistics for the climate cost of trade. We consider various features of the global economy—such as flexible abatement technologies, scale economies, input-output linkages, and endogenous supply of fossil fuels—and evaluate how each of them affects the climate cost of trade.
