Abstract

The paper gives a detailed description of AMOS, a macro-micro simulation framework parameterized on Scottish data. From a macroeconomic modelling perspective, AMOS has two relatively novel features: the supply side is specified in terms of the microeconomic behaviour of 'representative transactors' and there is a wide choice over the precise form of supply-side behaviour. An outline of model software, a full model listing and illustrative simulations are also provided.
