Dynare is a software platform for handling a wide class of economic models, in
particular dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) and overlapping
generations (OLG) models. The models solved by Dynare include those relying on
the rational expectations hypothesis, wherein agents form their expectations
about the future in a way consistent with the model. But Dynare is also able
to handle models where expectations are formed differently: on one extreme,
models where agents perfectly anticipate the future; on the other extreme,
models where agents have limited rationality or imperfect knowledge of the
state of the economy and, hence, form their expectations through a learning
process. In terms of types of agents, models solved by Dynare can incorporate
consumers, productive firms, governments, monetary authorities, investors and
financial intermediaries. Some degree of heterogeneity can be achieved by
including several distinct classes of agents in each of the aforementioned
agent categories.
Dynare offers a userfriendly and intuitive way of describing these models. It
is able to perform simulations of the model given a calibration of the model
parameters and is also able to estimate these parameters given a dataset. In
practice, the user will write a text file containing the list of model
variables, the dynamic equations linking these variables together, the
computing tasks to be performed and the desired graphical or numerical
outputs.
This package provides a full installation of Dynare, to be run on top of GNU
Octave.

R is a system for statistical computation and graphics. It consists
of a language plus a runtime environment with graphics, a debugger,
access to certain system functions, and the ability to run programs
stored in script files.
The design of R has been heavily influenced by two existing languages:
Becker, Chambers & Wilks' S and Sussman's Scheme. Whereas the
resulting language is very similar in appearance to S, the underlying
implementation and semantics are derived from Scheme.
The core of R is an interpreted computer language which allows
branching and looping as well as modular programming using functions.
Most of the uservisible functions in R are written in R. It is
possible for the user to interface to procedures written in the
C, C++, or FORTRAN languages for efficiency, and many of R's core
functions do so. The R distribution contains functionality for a
large number of statistical procedures and underlying applied math
computations. There is also a large set of functions which provide
a flexible graphical environment for creating various kinds of data
presentations.
Additionally, several thousand extension "packages" are available from
CRAN, the Comprehensive R Archive Network, many also as Debian packages,
named 'rcran'.
This package is a metapackage which eases the transition from the
pre1.5.0 package setup with its larger rbase package. Once installed, it
can be safely removed and aptget will automatically upgrade its components
during future upgrades. Providing this package gives a way to users to
then only install rbasecore if they so desire.
The package is enhanced by the following packages:

This is a set of routines for GNU R that implement various
statistical and econometric models using Markov chain Monte Carlo
(MCMC) estimation, which allows "solving" models that would otherwise
be intractable with traditional techniques, particularly problems in
Bayesian statistics (where one or more "priors" are used as part of
the estimation procedure, instead of an assumption of ignorance about
the "true" point estimates), although MCMC can also be used to solve
frequentist statistical problems with uninformative priors. MCMC
techniques are also preferable over direct estimation in the presence
of missing data.
Currently implemented are a number of ecological inference (EI)
routines (for estimating individuallevel attributes or behavior from
aggregate data, such as electoral returns or census results), as well
as models for traditional linear panel and crosssectional data, some
visualization routines for EI diagnostics, two itemresponse theory
(or idealpoint estimation) models, metric, ordinal, and
mixedresponse factor analysis, and models for Gaussian (linear) and
Poisson regression, logistic regression (or logit), and binary and
ordinalresponse probit models.
The suggested packages (rcranbayesm, eco, and mnp) contain
additional models that may also be useful for those interested in
this package.

This package provides a set of classes and methods to read data and metadata
documents exchanged through the Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange (SDMX)
framework, currently focusing on the SDMX XML standard format (SDMXML).
SDMX is an initiative to foster standards for the exchange of statistical
information. It is sponsored by several major providers of statistical
information: the Bank for International Settlements, the European Central
Bank, Eurostat (the statistical office of the European Union), the
International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Organisation for Economic Cooperation
and Development (OECD), the United Nations Statistics Division, the United
Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and the World Bank.
The package can therefore be used to download statistical information from the
servers of those organizations, and from those of several other institutions.

License: DFSG free, but needs nonfree components

Dynare is a software platform for handling a wide class of economic models, in
particular dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) and overlapping
generations (OLG) models. The models solved by Dynare include those relying on
the rational expectations hypothesis, wherein agents form their expectations
about the future in a way consistent with the model. But Dynare is also able
to handle models where expectations are formed differently: on one extreme,
models where agents perfectly anticipate the future; on the other extreme,
models where agents have limited rationality or imperfect knowledge of the
state of the economy and, hence, form their expectations through a learning
process. In terms of types of agents, models solved by Dynare can incorporate
consumers, productive firms, governments, monetary authorities, investors and
financial intermediaries. Some degree of heterogeneity can be achieved by
including several distinct classes of agents in each of the aforementioned
agent categories.
Dynare offers a userfriendly and intuitive way of describing these models. It
is able to perform simulations of the model given a calibration of the model
parameters and is also able to estimate these parameters given a dataset. In
practice, the user will write a text file containing the list of model
variables, the dynamic equations linking these variables together, the
computing tasks to be performed and the desired graphical or numerical
outputs.
This package is only useful to users having MATLAB installed on their
machine. It contains the source of the MEX files and will recompile them using
the existing MATLAB installation.

Dolo
Economic modelling in Python


License: BSD
Debian package not available

Dolo is a tool to assist researchers in solving several types of Dynamic
Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models, using either local of global
approximation methods.
Users are can separate the definition of their models from the solution
algorithm. A simple syntax is provided in YAML files to define variables and
equations of several types. This syntax integrates the specification of
occasionally binding constraints (a.k.a. complementarity conditions)
The user can then implement his own preferred solution method using one of the
provided tools (various types of interpolation, solvers, ...) or use one of
the already implemented procedures.
Dolo is written in Python and so are his solution routines. If you prefer or
need to use another language for the solution, you can always use dolo as a
preprocessor. In that case, dolo will just translate the model file into a
numerical file usable by your software. Currently, Octave/MATLAB and Julia are
supported.

Minsky
system dynamics program with additional features for economics


License: GPL3
Debian package not available

Minsky is one of a family of ``system dynamics'' computer programs. These
programs allow a dynamic model to be constructed, not by writing mathematical
equations or numerous lines of computer code, but by laying out a model of a
system in a flowchart, which can then simulate the system. These programs are
now the main tool used by engineers to design complex products, ranging from
small electrical components right up to passenger jets.
What does Minsky provide that other system dynamics programs don't boils down
to one feature: The Godley Table that enables a dynamic model of financial
flows to be derived from a table that is very similar to the accountant's
doubleentry bookkeeping table. Hence Minsky is very well suited for simulating
StockFlow Consistent (SFC) models.

Netlogo
multiagent programmable modeling environment


License: GPL2+
Debian package not available

NetLogo is a programmable modeling environment for simulating natural and
social phenomena. It was authored by Uri Wilensky in 1999 and has been in
continuous development ever since at the Center for Connected Learning and
ComputerBased Modeling.
NetLogo is particularly well suited for modeling complex systems developing
over time. Modelers can give instructions to hundreds or thousands of "agents"
all operating independently. This makes it possible to explore the connection
between the microlevel behavior of individuals and the macrolevel patterns
that emerge from their interaction.

bayesian Macroeconometrics in R


License: GPL2+
Debian package not available

BMR (Bayesian Macroeconometrics in R) is a collection of R and C++ routines
for estimating Bayesian Vector Autoregressive (BVAR) and Dynamic Stochastic
General Equilibrium (DSGE) models in the R statistical environment. Features
For BVARs, BMR supports:
normalinverseWishart prior,
Minnesota prior, and
* Mattias Villani's steadystate prior.
The BMR package can also estimate BVARs with timevarying parameters, as well
as classical (nonBayesian) VARs.
For DSGE models, the package can:
* solve models using either Harald Uhlig's method of undetermined coefficients
or Chris Sims' canonical decomposition;
* estimate models using MCMC by means of a Kalman filter or the Chandrasekhar
recursions;
* and estimate a hybrid DSGEVAR model.

Rothergecon
solver for large scale dynamic general equilibrium models


License: BSD
Debian package not available

gEcon allows users to describe their models in terms of optimisation problems
of agents. Given optimisation problems, constraints and identities, gEcon
derives the first order conditions, steady state equations, and linearisation
matrices automatically. Numerical solvers can be then employed to determine
the steady state and approximate equilibrium laws of motion around it.

Recs
MATLAB solver for DSGE models


License: Expat (mostly)
Debian package not available

RECS is a MATLAB solver for dynamic, stochastic, rational expectations
equilibrium models. RECS stands for "Rational Expectations Complementarity
Solver". This name emphasizes that RECS has been developed specifically to
solve models that include complementarity equations, also known as models with
occasionally binding constraints.
RECS is designed to solve smallscale nonlinear and complementarity models,
but not largescale models. For solving largescale problems, but without
complementarity equations, see Dynare or similar toolboxes.
