ECC5730 - Advanced applied general equilibrium analysis

6 points, SCA Band 3, 0.125 EFTSL

Postgraduate Faculty of Business and Economics

Leader: Professor John Madden


Clayton Second semester 2008 (Day)


The unit is a sequel to ECC3650. Students continue to develop essential AGE modelling skills in areas of theory, data, computing and application. Whereas the emphasis in ECC3650 is on comparative static analysis, this subject deals with dynamics, including the specification of capital accumulation and technological change. Forecasting applications of AGE models are emphasised.


The learning goals associated with this unit are to:

  • have an advanced understanding of all aspects of applied general equilibrium economics
  • be able to build and to use AGE-models in the preparation for postgraduate research projects
  • be able to implement AGE-modelling techniques as professional economists.
