A General Equilibrium Analysis of Partial-Equilibrium Welfare Measures: The Case of Climate Change
AbstractThis paper reports the results of an evaluation of partial-equilibrium welfare measures of the effects of large multisector shocks to an economic system. A nine a developed economy was used in the analysis. The findings indicate that the errors in single-sector, partial-equilibrium welfare measures depend on the consistency in the signs and approximate magnitude of indirect price effects. Disparities in either the direction or size of price changes in the indirectly affected markets can lead to large errors in the partial-equilibrium welfare measures.
