Our greatest economic challenge is to understand how the forces of globalisation will affect our prosperity. Modelling important economic and financial interactions in the global economy is the best way to make sense of the processes shaping our future. NIESR is the leading macroeconomics research institute in the UK. We are home of one of the most successful large-scale structural macroeconomic models in the world. Subscribers to the National Institute Global Econometric Model (NiGEM) include 30 of the largest central banks and finance ministries and an increasing number of private organisations. The integrity of our model has primacy ahead of commercial concerns.
