The Trans-Pacific-Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, if successfully implemented, will liberalize trade between the US, Japan and ten other Asia-Pacific economies, making it one of the largest regional agreements ever seen. The prospect of a comprehensive trade agreement spanning the Pacific raises a number of important quantitative questions. What is the likely magnitude of the economic gains? How do the gains compare to other proposed agreements? Are they evenly distributed across member economies and across societies within the members? What types of changes might we observe in the pattern of economic activity in the member economies? One of the most widely used techniques for evaluating these types of questions is numerical simulation with computable general equilibrium, or CGE, models. There have now been a number of papers written that use CGE methods to analyze the TPP. In this symposium we will discuss the CGE method, provide a synthesis of the key results that have emerged from the literature, and discuss some new simulation results of our own.
