MPIA-12302 Simulating the Distributive Impacts of Different Growth Strategies in the Philippines

Abstract

Governments encourage growth through various policies: infrastructure, education, training, health, agricultural extension, trade, etc. Each strategy has wide-ranging impacts on the entire economy (sectoral production, wages and other factor returns, consumer prices, public finances, etc.) with very different distributive consequences. By building these "motors of growth" into an economy-wide model linked to a household survey-based microsimulation model, we will simulate the distributive impacts of various growth policies, provide insights on accompanying policies to allow greater participation by the poor and a tool for researchers and policy makers
