Macrolinks: a Program about the Interrelations among Macroec
This interactive computer-based training program provides a comprehensive treatment of the interrelations among macroeconomic accounts and the flow of funds. It is the first CD-ROM produced by the IMF Institute on a core subject of its courses. The subject is presented in a variety of ways, using video, audio, and text, and the main points are illustrated with graphics and numerical examples. The program demonstrates how to construct a flow-of-funds table from available macroeconomic accounts and how to resolve inconsistencies in the data. Then, it lets the user exercise these skills on a flow-of-funds table for an actual case, and the program provides feedback as the task is being completed. The CD-ROM includes a glossary and answers to 40 frequently asked questions.
