This seminar will discuss two aspects of systems modeling of the automotive market. First, approaches for modeling imperfectly- competitive firm behavior with empirically-relevant vehicle demand models will be discussed. Second, understanding the fuel price - vehicle use relationship is a key issue for Greenhouse Gas policy. We will review what is really known about this relationship, and whether the body of knowledge is suitable for supporting policy to reduce vehicle use.
