Abstract: In this article, we design a phenomenological model of the global human population dynamics by using the gross world product (GWP) as an exogenous input variable to determine the birth rate and death rates of each age group. Using a historical fit, we show that our model accurately reproduces […]

Abstract: This paper follows van der Ploeg (Metroeconomica 37(2):221–230, 1985)’s research program in testing both its extension of Goodwin (in: Feinstein (ed) Socialism, capitalism and economic growth, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 4, 54–58, 1967) predator–prey model and the Minsky Financial Instability Hypothesis (FIH) proposed by Keen (J Post Keynes Econ 17(4):607–635, 1995). By […]

Abstract: Mixing economic growth with low-carbon objectives entails multidimensional challenges among which a shift in employment and a rapid transformation of infrastructure are involved. The aim of this paper is to provide a data-driven analysis to strengthen our understanding of what a low-carbon economy for Brazil would mean. Ultimately, our […]

WP – An Input-Output Analysis: What Would a Low-Carbon Economy ...


Abstract: To what extent can a worldwide carbon pricing foster the transition towards a low-carbon economy and help mitigate the effects of global warming? We address this question using a stock-flow consistent, financial and non-linear macrodynamics with uncertainty, calibrated for the world economy. More precisely, we assess the macroeconomic impact […]

Abstract: This paper presents a macroeconomic model that combines the economic impact of climate change with the pivotal role of private debt. Using a Stock-Flow Consistent approach based on the Lotka–Volterra logic, we couple its nonlinear monetary dynamics of underemployment and income distribution with abatement costs. A calibration of our model at […]

Abstract: In a stock-flow consistent macrodynamic model featuring two crucial endogenous destabilizing channels, debt accumulation and climate change, we perform a sensitivity analysis on four fundamental parameters of the climate and economic systems: (i) the climate sensitivity, (ii) the inertia of the carbon cycle, (iii) the labor productivity growth, and (iv) the share of damages sustained […]

Abstract: This paper follows Harvie (2000)’s research program in testing both Goodwin (1967)’s predator-prey model and the extension proposed byvan der Ploeg (1985). The author’s aim is to provide a guideline for the estimation and the backtesting strategy that can be applied to such a class of continuous-time macroeconomic model. The […]

Abstract: Recent talks claiming the necessity of austerity measures in France often take the unsustainibility of public debts as a starting point. In this analysis, we show that the current public debt levels in France are not a sufficient reason to undertake such austerity policies. To substantiate our claims, we […]

Abstract: The economic implications of oil price shocks have been extensively studied since the 1970s. Despite this huge literature, no dynamic stochastic general equilibrium model was available that captures two well-known stylized facts: (1) the stagflationary impact of an oil price shock, together with (2) the influence of the energy […]
