  Model (economics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In general terms, economic models have two functions: first as a simplification of and abstraction from observed data, and second as a means of selection of data based on a paradigm of econometric study.
Models in which the vector nature of the quantities is maintained are used in practice, for example Leontief input-output models are of this kind.
Models of consumption either assume that humans are immortal or that teenagers plan their life around an optimal retirement supported by the next generation.

 Model (economics) - LearnThis.Info Enclyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In economics, the term model denotes a theoretical construct that represents economic processes by a set of variables and a set of logical and quantitative relationships between them.
Examples of these are autoregressive moving average models and related ones such as autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (ARCH) and GARCH models for the modeling of heteroskedasticity.
Non-stochastic mathematical models may be purely qualitative (for example, models involved in some aspect of social choice theory) or quantitative (involving specific forms of functional relationships between variables).

 Financial economics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Financial economics is the branch of economics concerned with the workings of financial markets, such as the stock market, and the financing of companies.
It can be distinguished from other branches of economics by its "concentration on monetary activities", in which "money of one type or another is likely to appear on both sides of a trade." The questions addressed are typically framed in terms of "time, uncertainty, options and information" [1].
The underlying point behind all the model construction is that of finding a value that arbitrage will enforce.

In general terms, economic models are a simplification of and abstraction from observed data.
Such models are the basis for many environmental attacks on mainstream economists, for including the price of everything but the value of nothing in their models.
Also in 2004, the study Economics on the Edge of Chaos concludes that after noise is removed from SandP 500 returns, evidence of deterministic chaos is found.

 Academic Economics
Critics of behavioral economics often argue that apparent irrationality arises mainly because test subjects lack adequate incentives; the defenders of behavioral economics typically reply that their findings are robust to this criticism.
Economic models of politics typically make two assumptions about voters: First, their motives are egocentric, not sociotropic; second, their beliefs are rational, not subject to systematic bias.
Whether responses to positive economic questions are primarily sociotropic or egocentric hinges on whether the questions deal with what the paper terms "inputs" or "outputs": Beliefs about causation (responses to "input" questions) depend mostly on sociotropic variables, especially education and ideology.

She is president of the Center for Partnership Studies and frequently consults on the application of the partnership model and cultural transformation theory to all aspects of life.
The economic rules that we still have to a very large extent, as you gleaned from my seven-minute survey of thousands of years of history, are inherited from earlier times that oriented more closely to the dominator model.
One effect of the dominator model, which ranks the male half of humanity over the female half, is that it leads to what I just touched upon and will return to: the devaluation of the work and activities stereotypically considered feminine.

The ARCH econometric model for this (introduced by Engle (1982)) is that the variance of the series itself is an AR (autoregressive) time series, often a linear one.
The CAPM is one, distinguished from three that Fama (1991) identifies: (a) the Sharpe-Lintner-Black class of models, (b) the multifactor models like the APT of Ross (1976), and (c) the consumption based models such as Lucas (1978).

The scheme is similar to that which has been used to evaluate economic feasibility in the policy impact models used for the determination of appliance energy efficiency standards by the Department of Energy under the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA).
The goals of the appliance energy economics modeling is to provide a mechanism for estimating the costs and benefits of a diversity of appliance energy efficiency programs and policies globally.
While the mathematical and data structure of the model is the same, the definition of the case-specific features and data will be retrievable from a database database that describes the unique features of that particular appliance and its economic context.

Professor Stiglitz energized the teaching of economics by presenting students with the fundamental principles of economics without compromising the critical modern advances of the discipline.
Students progress through three macroeconomic models: a growth model with flexible prices, built from microfoundations; then a fixed-price model of unemployment; and finally a model relating inflation and unemployment, with slowly adjusting prices and wages.
Knowing how vitally important it is to relate economic principles to real-world issues, Professor Stiglitz steadily reinforces his presentation with lively vignettes on important policy issues.

 Supply and Demand
This model, the model of supply and demand, is perhaps the most basic of the models economists use to explain the world around us.
Given the model's importance in the way modern economists think, it is surprising that one does not find the model in the writings of Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Thomas Malthus, or John Stuart Mill, though all of these pioneers in economics used the words "supply" and "demand" frequently.
The modern supply-and-demand model does not appear until 1890, when Alfred Marshall published his Principles of Economics.

Before more articles appear like the Jeffrey Sachs article I pulled apart in my last post I think it is important for people to realize that this socalled Nordic model is not anything particularly unique to the Nordic countries.
In most cases they have been obvious failures like Panama’s Caja de Seguro Social swindle, but there is not one example of a welfare state that isn’t rotting away somewhere in the core.
What is true of almost all of these “Nordic Models” is that they were designed as a pyramid scheme.

The presence of other elements within the Mt Keith, Leinster and Kambalda mine tailings, including platinum group metals, gold and cobalt, might also bolster the profitability of Braemore’s project.
These could possibly be precipitated out via a fairly standard method and at little extra cost if they are deemed to be found in sufficient quantity, providing a nice fillip to the operation’s overall economics.
At this point, with much development work still undone and some uncertainty over feasibility remaining, shares in Braemore may still offer investors significant potential for capital growth.
