CGE Modelling Course

The Centre of Policy Studies (CoPS) is offering an online self-paced regional CGE modelling course over two weeks, 10-21 October 2022. The two week online self-paced TERM-USA course is based on the multi-regional TERM CGE model with an 11-region 26-sector database for the USA. The course format is online and self-paced, meaning participants work largely independently over the two weeks, with email support and 4 live Zoom tutorials available. This course will appeal to economists who wish to model the regional and national effects of policy changes and other economic shocks originating at both regional and national levels. TERM models have been used around the world to analyze diverse economic issues, including the effects of trade policy, productivity, major
construction projects, taste shifts and adverse events. More information including how to apply is available on the course webpage, https://www.copsmodels.com/termusacourse2022.htm.
