This paper documents the structure and key properties of a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model of the New Zealand economy.


I wish to thank Paul Gardiner and Nathan McLellan for their contribution to the development of this model through discussions and assistance with sections of this paper. This paper has been a long time in preparation. It benefited from comments on the early version of the paper from Bob Buckle, Viv Hall, and Roger Ridley. I would like to thank James Twaddle for his comments as discussant at the Australasian Macroeconomics Workshop, 4-5 April 2002.
