A Simple Stock Flow Model of the Danish Economy

Wynne Godley and Gennaro Zezza

Chapter 8 in Themes in Modern Macroeconomics, 1992, pp 140-179 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract This study describes the simple model of the Danish economy which we used for a course on macroeconomics in Aalborg during the winter of 1987–8. Our model differed from the conventional textbook IS-LM model in that it included, right from the start, a representation of stock (or balance sheet) variables which were consistently interrelated with flow variables. The statistical embodiment of the theoretical model constituted a useful introduction to economic statistics and the functional relationships were studied as part of an introduction to econometrics. The model as a whole was then simulated to discover something about how a real life economy works.
