WORLD ECONOMY DATABANK
The world economy databank contains a comprehensive set of annual series covering the period 1970 to the latest available year (usually 1 to 1 ½ years behind the release date of the databank). Complete and consistent series are provided for the world divided into 207 countries and territories.
The databank has been prepared by Alphametrics drawing on nearly 3 decades experience in the management of large datasets and following well-established methods for compilation of consistent series of economic data. Over the years this work has benefited from assistance and advice from the UN Statistics Division, UN-DESA, ILO and UNCTAD.
CAM Model of the World Economy
A tool for investigation of policy scenarios for the world economy tracing policy impacts through their short, medium and long-term timescales.
The model is based on historical data covering the entire world extracted from a databank that distinguishes 207 countries and country groups with comprehensive time series from 1970 to the latest available year.
Training use of the databank and model at international workshops in Delhi (2007), Thailand (2010), Brussels (2010), Goa (2010), Kolkata (2011),Beijing (2011) and London(SOAS 2014).
GPM for United Nations DESA
A global policy model (GPM) has been developed by UN DESA and Alphametrics for the study of medium-term policy coordination issues.
The focus is on providing a clearly-articulated structural explanation of developments in the world economy that have arisen or may arise in future from interactions between the main countries and country groupings.
Risk Model for Public Debt Management
A risk model for the Government of Thailand’s Public Debt Management Office providing deterministic and stochastic modelling to assess potential costs of debt service and risk exposures arising therefrom as a basis for evaluation of benchmarks for debt management.
An EU FP7 forward-looking study in association with the University of Cambridge and other European and international research institutions. This project assesses the position of Europe in the world in 2030.
All major dimensions are considered, from governance and politics, economic growth, finance, trade, employment and migration to technologies, energy security, environmental impacts and climate change, well-being of populations and values that they espouse.
