The Policy Simulation Library DC meeting: Cost-of-Capital-Calculator model demo – AEI’s Danielle Pletka: The US needs an endgame in the Middle East – AEI4th April 2019
Join us for the Policy Simulation Library (PSL) DC meeting hosted by AEI’s Open Source Policy Center to learn how computational simulation models are used to inform public policy decision-making. The meeting will begin with updates from PSL contributors and users about their open-source projects.
Then, Jason DeBacker (University of South Carolina) will present and demo the open-source Cost-of-Capital-Calculator (CCC). CCC is a model for evaluating the effect of US federal taxes on businesses’ investment incentives by calculating the marginal effective tax rates on new investments. CCC is a member of the PSL Catalog, an open-source software library of public policy models.
Everyone is welcome to the PSL DC meeting regardless of technical knowledge or experience, although please expect modeling code and results to be presented.
