General Equilibrium Modeling Package (GEMPACK)
The GEMPACK is used for building and solving applied general equilibrium models, including those to evaluate the impacts of greenhouse gas mitigation policies. GEMPACK calculates economic model solutions, starting from an algebraic representation of the model equations. These equations can be written as levels equations, linearized equations or a mixture of the two. The software includes a range of utility programs for handling the economic data base and the results of simulations, and is fully documented with several examples.
