HOS Model (Solver Version)
This is a Solver-based version of the Heckscher-Ohlin-Samuelson (HOS) model of production in a single economy. The model uses Cobb-Douglas functions for both production and final demand. Exogenous variables and parameters are in white, endogenous variables in grey. The user can change endowments, price, technology or preferences. A variety of the most commonly used geometric devices have been implemented. Aside from the method of implementation and minor cosmetic differences, the model can be used in the same way as the live version. A description of how the model was built is in Gilbert (2004).
Model Layout Guide
This model can accomplish all of the same exercises as the live version, the only changes being the location of the parameter/exogenous variable cells in the sheet. See the relevant section of the live version page for suggestions.
