Modeling Developing Countries' Policies in General Equilibrium


  • Jaime de Melo

    (FERDI, France & University of Geneva, Switzerland)


Policies affecting resource allocation across tradable sectors and those affecting the incentives to produce tradable activities are key determinants of macroeconomic balance and growth. Computable general equilibrium models have made significant contributions to both types of policies. With advancements in computing power and software, these models have become easy to implement and are now widespread. The question then is when and how to formulate them to avoid the ‘black box’ syndrome.
