Title:Measuring Sustainable Development: The Use of Computable General Equilibrium Models PDF Logo
Authors:Böhringer, Christoph
Löschel, Andreas
Issue Date:2004
Series/Report no.:ZEW Discussion Papers 04-14
Abstract:This paper advocates computable general equilibrium models as a methodological tool that is particularly suitable for measuring the impacts of policy interference on the three dimensions of sustainable development, i.e. environmental quality, economic performance (gross efficiency) and equity. These dimensions are inherently intertwined and subject to trade-offs. Computable general equilibrium models can incorporate various important sustainable development indicators in a single consistent framework and allow for a systematic quantitative trade-off analysis.
