A pluralist simulator


An interactive model simulator for macroeconomics
  • We are developing an interactive online textbook with an integrated model simulator for macroeconomics.

  • Competing economic theories and their economic policy recommendations are presented in a controversial way.

  • The assignment of different theoretical and economic policy concepts to different theoretical schools provides an overview of competing macroeconomic paradigms.


Understanding macroeconomic models actively
  • Students can take on the role of economic policy: they decide on monetary, fiscal and wage policy.

  • In different model worlds their decisions have different effects.

  • The theoretical basics are explained step by step in the accompanying online text.

  • Starting with simple macroeconomic models, which are gradually extended, students can understand the theoretical foundations of economic policy discussions.


German version to be published in summer 2019!
