Applied General Equilibrium : An Introduction, Hardback Book


This advanced textbook aims at providing a simple but fully operational introduction to applied general equilibrium.

General equilibrium is the backbone of modern economic analysis and as such generation after generation of economics students are introduced to it.

As an analytical tool in economics, general equilibrium provides one of the most complete views of an economy since it incorporates all economic agents (households, firms, government, foreign sector) in an integrated way that is compatible with microtheory and microdata.

The integration of theory and data handling is required for successful modeling but it requires a double ability that is not found in standard books.

With this book we aim at filling the gap and provide advanced students with the required tools, from the building of consistent and applicable general equilibrium models to the interpretation of the results that ensue from the adoption of policies.

The topics include: model design, model development, computer code examples, calibration and data adjustments, practical policy examples.
