At the 5th International Summer School on “Keynesian Macroeconomics and European Economic Policies”, organized in Berlin from July 27th to August 2nd, one day will be dedicated to stock-flow-consistent modeling
Again this year we will present stock-flow consistent modeling at the annual Levy Minsky Summer Seminar.
Speakers include Marc Lavoie and myself, and in the Stock-Flow Lab we (Michalis Nikiforos and myself) will guide participants to building a stock-flow model from scratch using Eviews
Applied Macro-Modelling: Fully Scalable Models – 2nd Edition
Winter School On Agent Based And Stock Flow Consistent Modelling
Limerick, January 26th – February 3th
Why You Should Join Our Winter School
If you are a highly motivated student of economics at master or Ph.D. level, or you are working with a research center or a public institution and want to spend one week studying, researching, discussing, and exchanging experiences in the nice atmosphere of an Irish University campus nurtured by international experts and fellow students from all around the world, our winter school offers you:
One-week winter university with international students and lecturers.
An opportunity to produce and confront research outputs such as thesis chapter or working paper with established scholars.
Lab modules, to learn how to implement and apply the theoretical models using software like R, Java.
This year, as in the previous years, Marc Lavoie and Gennaro Zezza will be presenting the Stock-Flow-Consistent modeling approach at the Minsky Summer Seminar at the Levy Institute.
INET’s Young Scholar Initiative has created, under the suggestion of Neil Lancastle and Jay Pocklington, a virtual reading group of SFC models as well as of Godley and Lavoie’s Monetary Economics. If you’re interested, send me an email and I’ll invite you to the groups.
On the second day we introduce an investment function and explore model properties by shocking parameters.
Lab Files #2
Rename the .txt file to .prg to run it into Eviews
Finally we prepare a more complex accounting structure for the last lab exercise (excel file)
In the first day at the stock-flow lab at the Minsky Summer Seminar we show how to build a very simple model.
Files from Class #1
We note that although the accounting is consistent, the model structure is inconsistent since the stock of capital is growing while gdp converges to a steady state.
Warning for those who already downloaded the zip file! The program file I published yesterday was incomplete. I have now updated it, please download it again.
The Levy Institute organizes the 2012 Minsky Summer Seminar, which will include a rich series of lectures on financial balances, stock-flow consistent models, and a stock-flow lab. We will publish teaching materials from the lab later on.
The stock-flow lab at the Minsky Summer School was a success, according to my personal view…
Some students asked me to make materials availble on the web, since we did not use the readily available programs I had previously published, and I have therefore created a Walk-trough for what we did during the three days.
Students attending were great, keeping their attention to the last minute of the lab, even after a long working day.
