Analysing a hypothetical Pierce's disease outbreak in South Australia using a dynamic CGE approach
Wittwer, G., McKirdy, S. and Wilson, R. (2006) Analysing a hypothetical Pierce's disease outbreak in South Australia using a dynamic CGE approach. Centre of Policy Studies, Monash University.
A dynamic computable general equilibrium model provides a tool for analysing the regional economic consequences of a hypothetical plant pest incursion. The model is very detailed at the industry and regional level. It includes a theory of regional labour market adjustment. In our example, a hypothetical Pierce's disease incursion, direct regional economic losses are magnified by consequent depressed investment in downstream wine processing sectors. Following elimination of the disease, it takes a number of years for the region to recover fully.
