ESRC Macroeconomic Modelling Bureau (U.K.)
This organization studies a number of macro models of the U.K.
economy. To quote, "The main purpose of the Bureau is to improve the
accessibility of macroeconomic models of the UK economy, to promote
general understanding of the properties of these models, and to
undertake its own comparative and methodological research. The
current portfolio comprises six models, two of which are "official"
models (those of the Bank of England and HM Treasury); the other
four are constructed and maintained by independent groups (London
Business School, National Institute of Economic and Social Research,
Oxford Economic Forecasting and Strathclyde University). All of
these are implemented on the University's mainframe computer.
Currently, one can learn about the organization, read recent
newsletters, and watch a demonstration of PC-Ready Reckoner, a PC
program which summarizes three of their models. It should be quite
useful as a teaching aid.
