Open Source Economic Models
List of Open Source Economic Models
A preliminary list of open source projects (both big and small) that are directly (or very closely) linked to the modelling of economic systems.
- The scope includes frameworks geared towards micro or macroeconomics and econometrics but does not include purely financial or risk management oriented frameworks (for which other lists are being developed). In econometrics there are many general purpose or more specialized libraries for timeseries analysis. For brevity, the focus is on those that are intrinsically linked to economic concepts.
- Any programming language or system is acceptable, provided the source is released under an open source license (or possibly placed in the public domain)
- Ideally the list should include active and supported projects (or at least indicate which ones are active)
- Ideally the list should distinguish between script collections (e.g. supporting academic courses) from frameworks / packages / libraries
