Matlab code for Public saving and policy coordination in aging economies
AbstractThe matlab code solving the model is available in policycoord.zip (3.4 Mb). The important files and directories in this zip file are: main.m (This is the main matlab file. It will be clear which files are called by main), csolve.m (An equation solver due to Chris Sims), \popdata (A directory with population data), \popdata\generate_pop.m (A program that reads the raw population data from the asc files and saves relevant data (including some country specific policy variables) in countryValues.mat), \results (A library with result files. If the result files are available, main.m will use the relevant results as its initial guess. The code updates these result files when it finds new solutions.) table[X].m and figure[X].m (Code that generate tables and figures used in the paper).
