RECS Toolbox

A Matlab solver for nonlinear, dynamic, stochastic, rational expectations equilibrium models (RECS) provides a modeling environment allowing economists to focus on the economic problem at hand, while abstracting from various issues related to the numerical implementation. It offers a user-friendly environment to develop small dynamic, stochastic models in which agents’ expectations of other agents’ behavior, markets and policies matter.

AGRODEP’s new Affiliate Membership program aims to increase its members’ exposure to colleagues and experts outside of AGRODEP. By sharing data, economic models, and experiences with non-AGRODEP members, and by engaging with their peers outside of the Consortium, AGRODEP members will be better positioned to perform science-based research and to help address strategic development issues and relevant agricultural-related challenges through the formation of sound policies.
