On Modeling Transport Costs
The interpretation of the loss of utility as transport costs in address models of differentiation poses a methodological difficulty. Transport costs implicitly amounts to assume that there is a good neither included in the differentiated sector nor in the composite (numeraire) good of the economy. We propose to use iceberg-type transport costs to solve this difficulty.
