Abstract: In this paper, we introduce the updated version of the Quarterly Japanese Economic Model (Q-JEM), which was first developed by Ichiue et al. (2009) and updated by Fukunaga et al. (2011). Q-JEM is a large-scale semi-structural model of the Japanese economy, which is designed to incorporate greater disaggregation of expenditure components and detailed financial market information. Compared to Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models, Q-JEM puts more emphasis on fitting data, while relaxing some theoretical discipline. To improve public access to the model, we share the replication files of the simulations conducted in the paper.
