This paper is concerned with the evolving use of computation policy models for assessing trade policy (including agricultural policy). Emphasis is placed on the benefits of using both partial and general equilibrium models, and on the limitations of both approaches. This is combined with a dose of historical perspective on the intellectual origins of these tools, and the need to make improvements in their use and validation.
