The Macroeconomic Model Data Base

The Macroeconomic Model Data Base (MMB) is an archive of macroeconomic models based on a common computational platform that provides various tools for systematic model comparison. The project is headed by Volker Wieland, Professor of Monetary Economics at Goethe University Frankfurt.

The MMB version 1.2 has been part of the EU-sponsored joint initiative on "Modelling and Implementation of Optimal Fiscal and Monetary Policy Algorithms in Multi-Country Econometric Models" (MONFISPOL). The development of various distinct features of the MMB has been supported financially by the Institute for Monetary and Financial Stability, the Center for Financial Studies and by several research grants: 1) through the Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7) of the European Commission's Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) Program from October 2008 to September 2011 under grant agreement SSH-CT-2009-225149, 2) the German Science Foundation (DFG Grant WI-2260/1-1), 3) the LOEWE initiative of the State of Hessen within the SAFE Center of Excellence, and 4) the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013, 2014-2017) under grant agreement "Integrated Macro-Financial Modeling for Robust Policy Design" (MACFINROBODS, grant no. 612796). The development of the MMB with adaptive learning was supported by the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic under grant agreement P402-11-J018.

We would like to thank the researchers who shared their model codes and/or assisted in model replication as well as Ph.D. students at Goethe University who helped implementing models in the database, listed here.
