Estimation of Gravity Models of Bilateral Trade

Time: May 30, 2014 9 AM - May 31, 2014 5 PM

Address: CESifo Conference Centre, Poschingerstrasse 5, 81679 Munich

This conference, organised by CESifo and the ETH Zürich in connection with a Special Issue in Empirical Economics, calls for papers on all aspects of the estimation of bilateral trade. In particular, we welcome papers with a strong orientation towards econometric issues.
This conference, organised by CESifo and the ETH Zürich in connection with a Special Issue in Empirical Economics, calls for papers on all aspects of the estimation of bilateral trade. In particular, we welcome papers with a strong orientation towards econometric issues. Possible topics include the following:
• Panel data analysis of gravity models.
• Allowing for time-dependence or cross-sectional dependence of the data in gravity model estimates.
• Measurement error and endogeneity of variables in the estimation of gravity models.
• Addressing missing data and zero trade flows.
• Addressing nonlinear effects of covariates (such as trade costs) on trade flows
• Structural estimation of gravity models.
There will be four keynotes and the organizers will select papers among the submitted ones for presentation at the Ifo Institute in Munich and, after undergoing a regular review process, for publication in the special issue.
All papers presented at the conference will appear in the CESifo Working Paper series.

Scientific organiser(s): Professor Badi H. Baltagi, Professor Dr. Peter Egger, Professor Michael Pfaffermayr
