Here on www.micromacroconsultants.com you can download as shareware Macroabc_BT_17Feb2014.xls  the Pilot Version of macroabc model for Bhutan.

We started with the Macroabc_UN_X model that is available as shareware on the UN website See link on www.micromacroconsultants.com From there we constructed a new sheet source with Bhutan data for the five sectors: Real, External, Fiscal, Monetary and Households

Then we have loaded the sheet model in Macroabc_UN_X step by step, row by row with data not anymore from sheet source_X but sheet sourceBT. After that we have changed some coefficients and assumptions and added a hydropower block  This shareware version produces a scenario till 2021, but this is not yet a plausible forecast. This is not yet an operational version.

This is a pilot version that  12-21 April 2014 will be discussed with local experts in the Gross National Happiness Commission in Bhutan. In discussion with local experts, all coefficients and assumptions can be changed.

This is a gift from Micromacro Consultants to the people of Bhutan. Everybody in Bhutan is free to use this model as long as the source is properly acknowledged. And clearly is mentioned that all assumptions and by that all results are the responsibility of the user.

The pilot model for Bhutan can be downloaded here:
