Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) Models in Julia JuMP

07/28/2023, 3:30 PM3:40 PM UTC

Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models are large systems of non-linear equations that combine economic theory with real economic data to describe impacts of policies or shocks in the economy. Currently these problems are predominately solved using GAMS which is an expensive, closed source solution. We have created a package called GamsStructure.jl to emulate GAMS data manipulation in Julia. We will discuss several models created in both GAMS and Julia to highlight key similarities.
