Solution concept General equilibrium (closed economy)
Solution method SimulationImaclim-R is implemented in Scilab, and uses the fonction fsolve from a shared C++ library to solve the static equilibrium system of non-linear equations.
Anticipation Recursive dynamics: each year the equilibrium is solved (system of non-linear equations), in between two years parameters to the equilibrium evolve according to specified functions.

Imaclim-R is a global model of the world economy, divided into the following 12 regions and shown in Figure 1:

  • USA
  • Canada
  • Europe
  • OECD Pacific
  • Former Soviet Union
  • China
  • India
  • Brazil
  • Middle East
  • Africa
  • Rest of Asia
  • Rest of Latin America
