Economic Geography, Trade, and War

  • David Bearce and Eric Fisher

This paper uses computational techniques to explore the relationship between trade and war. It develops and simulates an agent-based model in which trade and military conflict are emergent processes within a system of states. The model explores different initial configurations, and the economic geography evolves endogenously. Simulations of the model show that some of the same factors promoting trade may also engender military conquest, revealing important qualifications to the conventional wisdom that there is an inverse relationship between trade and war.
