Abstract: This paper established a spatial computable general equilibrium model to simulate the Japanese economy. Four scenarios representing different possible labour and capital loss in the prospective Nankai earthquake were set up to assess the impacts of labour and capital on regional economy.

Keywords: spatial computable general equilibrium; SCGE model; labour loss; capital loss; regional economy; Nankai earthquake; Japan; Japanese economy; simulation; impacts.
