"The CRUSOE Suite"
by Horridge, Mark

The ORANI-G CGE model is based on the Australian ORANI model described in the eponymous book by Dixon, Parmenter, Sutton and Vincent. ORANI-G is used as the basis of an annual course, conducted at Monash University, which simultaneously introduces participants to the theory of general equilibrium models and to the techniques of solving them with GEMPACK. A monograph is available which describes and explains the model. There is a web page devoted to the model.

ORANI-G has proved an excellent starting point for the construction of other single-country models. Various researchers have adapted it to a number of countries including Denmark, Philippines, Chinas, Korea, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Brazil, Vietnam, Pakistan, South Africa, Fiji and Thailand.

The CRUSOE project extends the usefulness of ORANI-G by providing for it a series of databases covering 66 countries or world regions. These databases cover 10 sectors and are drawn from Version 5 of the GTAP database. The same TABLO-generated model works with any of the 66 databases. Also, a Windows program, CRUSOE45, is supplied which enables you to create similar databases with more or different sectors -- providing you have access to the GTAP database.
