'At a time when globalization is being hotly debated, Mary E. Burfisher provides a valuable introduction to the main tool for assessing the impact of trade policies on the economy. In addition to the economics and data underlying CGE models, the book provides structured exercises so that readers can build and run their own models, contributing much-needed analysis on a contentious issue.' Shantayanan Devarajan, Chief Economist, Middle East and North Africa Region, World Bank 'Mary E. Burfisher is a gifted teacher and superb writer. With this book, she further establishes herself as the pre-eminent guide for those seeking an introduction to CGE analysis. Starting with a model of bicycle supply and demand, the reader's horizons are quickly expanded into an operational framework for policy analysis within an economy-wide framework.' Tom Hertel, Purdue University, Indiana 'CGE modeling is used worldwide to clarify options in many areas including trade, taxation, environment, resources, transportation and immigration. Mary E. Burfisher's book is a comprehensive, well-motivated introduction to this important field.' Peter Dixon, Centre of Policy Studies, Victoria University, Melbourne
