Macroeconomic Application Software

Stand-alone packaged Software for calculating results of modern macroeconomic (DSGE) models


The stand-alone programs are based on Harald Uhlig's Toolkit and on the program Matlab, but both of them do not have to be installed on your computer. Special thanks go to the contributors of the codes.

Smets and Wouters
  • Description: This exe-file, once executed, will install a program on your computer which allows you to get impulse responses to various shocks in the Smets and Wouters (JEEA, 2003) model. The "Dynare" part in the filename refers to the fact that there are differences between the model equations given in the JEEA article and the impulse responses printed there, which are based on a Dynare program of the authors. The file here follows the specification used in the Dynare code of the authors. See the related lecture notes pdf for details on the differences.

Hansen (1985)
  • Description: This exe-file, once executed, will install a program on your computer which allows you to get impulse responses in the Hansen (1985) benchmark real business cycle model.
