Modelling the Effects of Population Ageing on the Economy
The National Institute of Economic and Social Research invites you to a seminar on Overlapping Generations Computable General Equilibrium (OLG-CGE) modelling and its policy applications. The event coincides with the completion of an ESRC-funded project at NIESR that involved building a dynamic OLG-CGE model for the UK (NiAGE), and applying it to examine the economic effects of population ageing in the UK.
The seminar will summarise the outcomes of the project and future plans for NiAGE. Four international speakers who have extensive experience in OLG-CGE modelling and its policy applications will also present their research. The presentations will be followed by a buffet lunch and the opportunity for informal discussion.
Date: Monday 30th November 2015
Venue: National Institute of Economic and Social Research, 2 Dean Trench St, Smith Square, London SW1P 3HE
