The Macroeconomic Impact of Federal Pollution Control Programs:1978 Assessment, Technical Appendix

DRI's analysis of the economic impact of mandated pollution control expenditures was presented in the report "The Macroeconomic Impact of Federal Pollution Control Programs - 1978 Assessment." The following technical appendix is meant to supplement that report. It presents a more detailed description of the structure of the DRI econometric model of the U.S. economy. The direct changes imposed on the model in the course of the analysis are described in detail, and discussed in the context of the model's structure. The linkages by which those changes influenced the model's depiction of the economy's behavior are critiqued in their conformity to the linkages postulated by different streams of current macroeconomic thought. Complete print-outs from each simulation of all variables in the model are included.
