Summary 
This book provides an accessible, undergraduatelevel introduction to computable general equilibrium (CGE) models, a class of model that has come to play an important role in government policy decisions. The book uses a graphical approach to explain the economic theory that underlies a CGE model, and provides results from simple, smallscale CGE models to illustrate the links between theory and model outcomes. The book includes eleven guided, handson exercises that introduce modeling techniques that are applied to realworld economic problems. Students will learn how to integrate their separate fields of economic study into a comprehensive, general equilibrium perspective as they develop their skills as producers or consumers of CGEbased analysis
