After a first very fruitful workshop in Dijon (Going Further … Together: www.antoinegodin.eu/dijon) and a second venue in Limerick (Building a Common Language: www.antoinegodin.eu/limerick), which we hope to be highly stimulating, we will conclude this series of workshops in Berlin, during the FMM conference.
Indeed, two sessions (8 papers) will be dedicated to SFC modeling. We wish to remain within the areas described in the original call for papers (see attachment) and thus encourage papers addressing the following topics:
• The theory of employment and unemployment
• Possibilities and limitations of monetary and fiscal policy
• Labor market institutions, active labor market policies, and decent jobs
• Industrial policy, productivity and outsourcing
• Green jobs and limits to growth
• Working time and employment in a stagnating economy
However, papers treating other subjects related to the call for papers of the first two workshops (empirics, micro foundations, policy recommendation) will also be considered. Please note that all papers will be forwarded to the conference organizers should they decide to include SFC models in other sessions. Furthermore, more than one paper per author may be proposed, either via this call for paper or via the conference call for paper (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The deadline for paper proposals is 30 June 2013. Please send an abstract (one page) to email@example.com. Decisions will be made in early August. Registration forms for the introductory lectures and the conference will be made available online in mid-August. Accepted papers should be sent by 15 October to be posted on the conference web page.
Selected papers might be published after the conference in a special issue of the European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention (EJEEP) dedicated to SFC modeling.

Anybody interested in contributing to the discussion on stock-flow-consistent modeling is very welcome to join us.
However, to avoid a growing number of fake registration, you should email the administrator if you wish to get a user id on this web site. Thank you!
I wish to thank Eugenio Caverzasi and Antoine Godin for updating our list of references!
Their working paper on stock-flow models should be available soon.
The web site was hacked, probably exploiting a weakness in the wordpress theme we adopt. Problems should have been resolved now.
When possible, I will publish here links to new working papers adopting the stock-flow-consistent approach, as well as updating our database.
Everyone publishing in this area is strongly encouraged to subscribe to this site, and publish a link to their research output
A lab on stock-flow-consistent models started today in Pavia. The slides follow…
and an excel file for a simple model
I am writing an economics thesis and chose the stock-flow framework as my subject. I have past experience in system dynamics (SD) from a non-economics perspective and feel very at home with this approach. I am working my way through Monetary Economics and its models to grasp the concepts. It is interesting to think about the models in terms of SD. I have expressed a few of the simpler models in the book as SD models. SD gives very nice visualization and even interactivity, as you can experiment with constants. If anyone is interested I could upload a pic of how it looks.
I am interested in the principles and assumptions that is behind the SFC approach and guidelines for construction; like quadruple entries, stock/flow norms. What sets it apart from the general approach? Has anyone an overview or short description?
All the best,
I have dropped the “social network” part of this website, including the Forum section, so I am replicating here a post meant to start a discussion…
I think it would be interesting and helpful to have some simple code for solving models over the internet, allowing visitors to a web site to change parameters, or size of a shock, and check the outcome of simulations.
A nice example, for a different class of models, has been developed here: http://p.seppecher.free.fr/jamel
Anyone interested in contributing?
I am still testing this website, and there may be changes in the next few weeks.
Discussions are supposed to take place in the Forum section, and the software I adopted organizes forums by groups, so you should be part of a group if you want to contribute.
New messages in a forum are not reported in the main section, so check the forums page if you are interested.
We are already having “spam users” registering, who will be deleted. If you find your account deleted, please contact me.
Any suggestions for improving the web site are more than welcome!
This web project started from an idea of Marc Lavoie.
It is meant to be a collaborative project on building theoretical and empirical stock-flow-consistent models in economics, and it is open to the contribution of anyone who is interested.
