      Ferreira, Pedro Cavalcanti; Trejos, Alberto (Fundação Getulio Vargas. Escola de Pós-graduação em Economia, 2016-05-04)
      We develop an intertemporal model of the international economy, where tradeable intermediate goods are produced with capital, labor and hydrocarbons, and used in the production of non-tradeable consumption and investment ...
    • Gains from trade and measured total factor productivity 

      Ferreira, Pedro Cavalcanti; Trejos, Alberto (Fundação Getulio Vargas. Escola de Pós-graduação em Economia, 2010-05-31)
      We develop and calibrate a model where diferences in factor en-dowments lead countries to trade di¤erent goods, so that the existence of international trade changes the sectorial composition of output from one country to ...
    • On the growth effects of barriers to trade 

      Trejos, Alberto; Ferreira, Pedro Cavalcanti (Escola de Pós-Graduação em Economia da FGV, 1999-09-22)
      We study the macroeconomic effects of international trade policy by integrating a Hecksher-Ohlin trade model into an optimal-growth framework. The model predicts that an open economy will have higher factor productivity ...

      Ferreira, Pedro Cavalcanti; Trejos, Alberto (Escola de Pós-Graduação em Economia da FGV, 2001-10-17)
      We study the macroeconomic effects of international trade policy by integrating a Hecksher-Ohlin trade model into an optimal-growth framework. The model predicts that a more open economy will have higher factor productivity. ...

      Trejos, Alberto; Ferreira, Pedro Cavalcanti (Fundação Getulio Vargas. Escola de Pós-graduação em Economia, 2008-05-09)
      We develop and calibrate a model where differences in factor endowments lead countries to trade intermediate goods, and gains from trade reflect in total factor productivity. We perform several output and growth decompositions, ...
