  • Chitiga, Margaret; Mabugu, Ramos; Kandiero, Tonia; Mabugu, Margaret; Chitiga-Mabugu, Margaret (University of Pretoria, Department of Economics, 2007-09)
    The paper uses a micro-simulation computable general equilibrium (CGE) model to study the impact on poverty of a complete removal of tariffs in Zimbabwe. The model incorporates 14006 households derived from the 1995 ...
  • Blignaut, James Nelson; Chitiga-Mabugu, Margaret; Mabugu, Ramos; Mabugu, Margaret; Chitiga, Margaret (Energy Research Insitute, University of Cape Town, 2005-08)
    This paper discusses the procedures and results of constructing a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory for South Africa, using the official national energy balance for 1998. In doing so, the paper offers a snapshot ...
  • Mabugu, Ramos; Chitiga, Margaret; Mabugu, Margaret; Chitiga-Mabugu, Margaret; Amusa, Hammed (Juta, 2009-09)
    This paper assesses the economic effects of a hypothetical fuel levy imposed by South African provinces. The welfare effects of increasing the fuel levy by 10 per cent are negative but very small. Similarly, the marginal ...
