Tax Policy Analysis Modeling

The Beacon Hill Institute for Public Policy Research

CGE tax modeling
A CGE tax model is a formal description of the economic relationships among producers, households, government and the rest of the world.
It is general in the sense that it takes all the important markets and flows into account. It is an equilibrium model because it assumes that demand matches supply in every market; this is achieved by allowing prices to adjust within the model. It is computable because, with the help of a computer, the model can be used to generate numerical solutions to concrete policy and tax changes.
Moreover, it is a tax model because it pays particular attention to the role played by different taxes.
