The Mistreated Model: A Reply
This paper addresses the issues raised by Johnston et al. (2003) in relation to the spatial econometric treatment of the gravity model of trade in Porojan (2001). We show that the findings reported there are robust to alternative specifications. Furthermore, we indicate that the proposed formulation takes spatial effects into account while separating the impact of distance from far away trading partners from the 'neighborhood effect,' particularly within regional trading blocs.
