"Are we there yet? Adjustment paths in response to Tariff shocks: a CGE Analysis."
by Wiskich, Tony and Cedric Hodges

This paper takes the mini USAGE model developed by Dixon and Rimmer (2005) and modifies it in order to better mimic the expected adjustment path following a tariff reduction. Results from the adjusted model are compared against the standard model. It is found that while the standard model does a good job of capturing the expected long-run behaviour of the economy in response to this shock, the adjustment path is not appropriate. However, with a few relatively straight forward changes, the standard model can produce both satisfactory long-run outcomes and a more plausible adjustment path. These changes are documented in an appendix and are considered applicable to a wide range of models currently in use.
