Earlier Version (May 2001) of the MONASH Model Book

Dynamic, General Equilibrium
Modelling for Forecasting and Policy:
a Practical Guide and Documentation of MONASH

by Peter B. Dixon and Maureen T.Rimmer

was published by North-Holland in 2002.

Available here are three technical chapters, chapters 4, 5 and 6, from an earlier version (dated May, 2001) of the book. These chapters were too detailed for inclusion in the final version. They will be valuable to people who want to run MONASH or to build their own detailed dynamic model.
The chapters in the May 2001 version are:

The North-Holland book contains the material in chapters 1, 2, 3 and 7, together with schematic versions of the material in Chapters 4, 5 and 6.

You can download the Table of Contents and Chapters 4, 5 and 6 in PDF format.

Mini-USAGE is a miniature version of USAGE. Our aim in creating Mini-USAGE is to reduce barriers to entry into the world of MONASH-style dynamic general equilibrium modelling. By providing Mini-USAGE, we hope to give modellers a tool for understanding the theory, construction and computing of MONASH-style models and for interpreting results. For this purpose, Mini-USAGE is unencumbered by detail.
