The Quantitative Macroeconomics and
Real Business Cycle Home Page

This is a collection of links to several resources about quantitative macroeconomics and especially real business cycle (RBC) theory on the World-Wide Web. RBC theory is now also commonly refered to as "Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE)" theory, or simply "Dynamic General Equilibrium (DGE)" theory reflecting the recent uses of this methodology.

Apart from links, you will find quite a lot of original material (bibliography, code, etc.) on this site. You are very welcome to contribute to this page or to send me pointers to interesting resources related to QM&RBC. This is an excellent way to advertise your conference or make your work known to the scientific community.

These pages are maintained by Christian Zimmermann from the Economic Research Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
