TRADE IN COMMODITIES AND TRANSPORTATION SERVICES

A two-country, three-commodity three-factor trade model is set out. One commodity is the output of transportation services. These services are tradable, produced with a production function distinct from those used by the other two (final) commodities between countries. Stolper-Samuelson relations on the changes of world commodity prices are set out. The Kuhn-MacKinnon fixed point algorithm is used to numerically solve the two-country model for purposes of illustration. Transportation subsidies are introduced and the example is resolved. The welfare costs of the subsidies are measured.
