GJLS replication materials

This page contains the files needed to replicate the results in the latest versions of the following two papers:

Gagnon, Etienne, David Lopez-Salido, and Benjamin Johannsen (forthcoming). "Understanding the New Normal: The Role of Demographics," IMF Economic Review, accepted on December 12, 2020.

Gagnon, Etienne, David Lopez-Salido, and Benjamin Johannsen (forthcoming). "Supply-Side Effects of Pandemic Mortality: Insights from an Overlapping-Generation Model," B.E. Journal of Macroeconomics, accepted on January 13, 2021.

We make available two versions of the replication files. The first version (7 MBs) includes the minimal set of files needed to replicate the IMF Economic Review results; the programs must be run to create all filtered data and model simulations. The second version (118 MBs) adds the minimal set of files needed to replicate the results in both papers. In addition, the second version includes a copy of the baseline (no-pandemic) simulation results from the IMF Economic Review paper so that the pandemic simulations can be reproduced without the need to replicate any simulation from the IMF Economic Review paper.
