General Equilibrium Models

  • Asahi Noguchi


Since the time of Leon Walras (1834–1910), describing the economy as systems of simultaneous equations has been a customary task of economists. They are broadly called general equilibrium models, though there are several variations among them. In this chapter we describe a method of obtaining numerical solutions of these models with Mathematica. In addition, we show how Mathematica can depict various aspects of these models graphically.
