As is common in AGE models with monopolistic competition, Brown does not impose integer constraints on the number of firms so that nt can assume any real value. In her model simulations of NAFTA, the number of firms changes by less than integer amounts. Were integer constraints imposed in the simulations, it is likely that the number of firms would remain unchanged; we strongly suspect that this conclusion would generalize to other situations. Market Structure: A variety of different assumptions are made in this volume regarding market structure.
Imperfect competition was then introduced into the static AGEs. Based on early evidence, the emerging generation of AGEs would appear to involve more sophisticated dynamic processes. The dynamic gains from trade liberalization are typically greater than the static gains emphasized in the current generation of AGEs. For example, liberalization of capital goods leads to increased investment, which leads to accumulation of capital and to welfare gains over time. In addition to the dynamic effects related to capital accumulation, trade liberalization may lead to an increase in the rate of technical change.
