RWI Essen (Rheinisch-Westfälisches Institut Für Wirtschaftsforschung)
The seminar topics will include:
Strategies and Analysis for Economic Recovery using REMI PI+
This is a comprehensive introduction to REMI PI+ and specifically, its application in measuring impacts of economic development initiatives. What will adding a new industry or business do to a regional economy? Alternatively, what will the addition of a research center do to employment and overall productivity? PI+ provides the answer to these sorts of development questions.
Evaluating Transportation Infrastructure under Turbulent Times
It’s easy to estimate job growth directly from a construction project but what happens when the project is completed? This presentation describes how REMI approaches transportation and infrastructure developing and funding through transportation cost. Discussion includes project prioritization and regional macroeconomic impacts of transportation infrastructure improvement.
Evaluating Fiscal Policy in Light of Financial Crisis and Aging Population
REMI PI+ provides a dynamic framework to evaluate the impacts of taxes and government spending in response to recovery initiatives. In addition to quantifying economic impacts, PI+ can analyze policy effects on the fiscal budget. We will demonstrate how to use PI+ to investigate and compare strategies to create comprehensive policies best for serving the changing landscape of economy and population.
Macroeconomic Effects of Energy & Environmental Policies
We will present REMI’s studies on economic impacts of energy and environmental policies. We will examine the costs and benefits of climate change regulation, renewable energy projects, and emission trading schemes.
