On the website ocp.epi-mmb.com various models and scenarios can be simulated and compared directly. For the comparison, users can choose between 25 different models, four different shocks and ten variables.
The simulations available on the OCP are based on the models presented in the Epi-MMB. Created in December 2021, it provides a platform for researchers and policy advisors who want to assess the macroeconomic and health related impacts of epidemics and possible policy interventions. The Epi-MMB also provides interesting details on all the models and replication packages are available to download.
The Epi-MMB is a joint project of Prof. Mathias Trabandt and Prof. Volker Wieland. Mathias Trabandt is a Professor of Macroeconomics at Goethe University, Volker Wieland holds the Endowed Chair of Monetary Economics and is Managing Director at the IMFS. Currently, Alexander Dück, Clara Lindemann, Anh H. Le, KaiLong Liu, Sirikorn Puangjit and Sofia Semik form part of the MMB team.
