Authors: Matthew W. Peter, Mark Horridge, G.A.Meagher, Fazana Naqvi and B.R.Parmenter


This paper presents the theoretical specification of the MONASH-MRF model. MONASH-MRF is a multiregional multisectoral model of the Australian economy. Included is a complete documentation of the model's equations, variables and coefficients. The documentation is designed to allow the reader to cross-reference the equation system presented in this paper in ordinary algebra, with the computer implementation of the model in the TABLO language presented in CoPS/IMPACT Preliminary Working Paper No. OP-82.

JEL Classification: C68, D58, R10, R13.

Keywords: multiregional, regional modelling, CGE, regional and Federal government finances.
