This paper describes the major features and structure of the G-Cubed (Agriculture) multi-country, multi-sector intertemporal general equilibrium model. It is an extension and a variation of the G-Cubed model developed by Warwick McKibbin and Peter Wilcoxen to include relatively detailed agricultural sectors and a country dis-aggregation relevant for key US agricultural markets. The paper is intended to accompany the documentation of the G-Cubed model provided by McKibbin and Wilcoxen (1995). Other background papers on the model can be found at www.msgpl.com.au.
My biggest concern is that Washington is signaling to Russia that it’s OK to meddle in the politics of sovereign nations which are your neighbors. Meddling is going on from Paris to Ukraine, from east to west and north to south, within Europe and at its borders, and always with the intent of undermining the credibility and effectiveness of democratic institutions. And it is being either denied or downplayed.
