9 Model overview
10 A pioneer in global modeling Oxford s Global Economic Model was developed in the early 1980s by leading economists from Oxford Economics and Oxford University. John Walker, today s Chairman of Oxford Economics, worked together with Sir David Hendry, Dr. John Muellbauer, and other early pioneers of econometric thinking. Over the past 30 years, Oxford s global model has gone through continuous improvements. For example, after the global 2008/09 recession, we extended the model s coverage of interest rates, balance sheet variables, credit ratings, and feedback effects. Over 100 organisations use our model for forecasting, stress testing and scenario analysis. It has also been used as a teaching tool at several universities. The model design is flexible so that it can be used in conjunction with other models. At Oxford Economics, it sits at the heart of our suite of industry, city and economic impact models.
11 Today s Global Economic Model Oxford s Global Economic Model is the world s leading globally integrated macro model, used by over 100 clients around the world, including finance ministries, leading banks, and blue-chip companies. With a 30-year track record, the model provides a rigorous and consistent structure for forecasting, scenario analysis, stress testing and impact analysis. The model covers 46 countries in detail, plus the Eurozone, and provides headline forecasts for another 30 countries. Remaining countries are covered in trading blocs. Data and forecasts in the model are updated each month. The model is available with 5, 10 and 25-year forecast horizons. Oxford Economics provides telephone and support, and runs regular training workshops.
12 Comprehensive geographic coverage The model covers 46 countries in detail, including many emerging markets, and provides headline forecasts for another 30 countries. The remaining countries are covered in 6 blocs : OPEC, Eastern Europe, Africa, Latin America, rest of OECD, rest of World.
13 Integrated global model with multiple linkages Trade volumes - World trade for each country is a weighted average of the growth in total goods imports (excluding oil) of all other countries. Competitiveness - IMF relative unit labour costs where available. Trade prices - One country s exports is another s imports Interest rates and exchange rates Commodity prices Oil depends on supply/ demand balance Metals on industrial growth Capital flows - Including the impact of FDI, credit ratings and bond spreads.

17 How our model works
18 Our modelling formula There are three main types of economic models: 1. Vector Auto Regression (VAR): Purely statistical models that capture the linear interdependencies among multiple time series. Because they lack an economic framework, these models are best used for short-term (less than 6 months) forecasting, rather than longer-term analysis. 2. Dynamic-Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE): Designed in line with macroeconomic theory, these models replicate the behaviour of the economy by analyzing the interaction of economic variables. Since they are equilibrium models that reproduce historical averages, they perform poorly in forecasting tests. 3. Macroeconometric Error Correction: A hybrid modelling method that combines the merits of VAR and DSGE models by estimating the speed at which a dependent variable returns to its equilibrium after a shock. Oxford Economics use this third approach, which is best equipped to support our sophisticated forecasting and analytical activities. Our economic model consists of over 26,500 interlinked equations based on historical correlations and economic theory.
19 Economic drivers behind the model The Oxford model is an eclectic model designed to capture the key relationships in the global economy. Keynesian in the short run Monetarist in the long run In the short run, shocks to demand will generate economic cycles that can be influenced by fiscal and monetary policy. But over the long-run, output is determined by supply side factors: investment, demographics, labour participation and productivity.
20 The equations behind the model The basic principle behind the Oxford model is that economic trends and policies work in combination to drive the growth of an economy. This can be expressed as a formula: GDP Y = C + I + G + NX Net exports = exports imports (function of global economic conditions) Consumption (function of income, wealth, prices and interest rates) Investment (function of return on capital and changes in capacity utilization) Government spending (function of policy choices and state of the economy) Our economists input initial assumptions into our model equations. The model then runs through thousands of iterations to solve across all country models to arrive at an equilibrium level.
21 How our country models work The broad structure of our models is similar across countries, with amendments to reflect country specific factors such as dependence on commodities, exchange rate regime, and flexibility of the labour market. The key relationships in a typical model include: Consumer spending is driven by real income, wealth and interest rates. Investment is driven by the return on investment and changes in capacity utilization. Exports depend on world demand and competitiveness. Wages move with inflation, productivity and unemployment relative to the natural rate. Prices are a mark-up on unit costs, are profit margins are a function of the output gap. Monetary policy is modelled to reflect central bank behaviour. Exchange rates are determined by relative productivity and net external assets in the long run, and by movements in relative interest rates in the short run.
22 Example: A China hard landing If you have a China hard landing then this translates into the global economy in a number of ways: Weaker demand causes Chinese imports to fall. This translates into lower exports. Countries whose exports are most dependent on China suffer most, which in turn hits their economic growth so that they import less from China (and other countries), creating adverse global multiplier effects. There will be downward pressure on Chinese inflation, resulting in lower Chinese export prices. Other countries import prices will therefore be lower, cutting their import bill but also putting downward pressure on their inflation. Lower Chinese demand mean fewer jobs. This subdues wages, and improves manufacturer competitiveness. If Chinese authorities respond to weaker growth by managing the exchange rate lower, that also increases competitiveness in world markets. These factors add to the pressure on exporters in the rest of the world. Lower Chinese growth means less demand for oil and other commodities. That puts downward pressure on commodity prices, exacerbating the impact of the China slowdown for net commodity exporters but mitigating the impact to some degree for countries that are net commodity importers.
23 What our global model can do
24 Our global model supports a wide range of business analysis Our model can provide a rigorous, customisable framework to support a wide range of planning, marketing and risk management activities. Scenario planning Assess the impact of potential economic, political or financial shocks on your revenue, costs and market exposure Stress testing Conduct stress testing and reverse stress testing. Financial firms can use the model to run CCAR scenarios to stress test balance sheets Market sizing Help identify key markets around the world and size the opportunity for your products and services GLOBAL ECONOMIC MODEL Impact analysis Gauge how a change to a government policy or emerging macro development will affect your business Forecasting Enable you to correlate economic drivers to your business so that you can forecast sales performance Data codification Provide a rich databank of consistent economic indicators to support various planning and budgeting activities
25 The model can be used to address a broad set of questions What is the economic impact of escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine? What would be the impact of a banking crisis in China? How damaging are high oil prices for the global economy? What would be the repercussions of a Eurozone break-up? Will tapering in the US trigger an emerging market capital crisis? What would be the impact of deflation on the Eurozone economy? Can a renaissance in the US lift the global economy?
26 Our model supplies you with key scenarios The Oxford Global Economic Model allows you to assess the impact of key scenarios at a click-of-the-button. Scenarios are regular updated but currently cover the following risk factors: Commodity markets oil price and supply shocks Exchange rate risk Quantitative easing and interest rate moves by leading Central Banks Credit crunch Fiscal austerity Results table is automatically displayed after the scenario. Our standard quarterly scenarios can also be accessed through our Data Workstation.
27 Our Global Model comes with a Data Workstation Our Data Workstation offers a user-friendly platform that allows you to easily select and compare data and forecasts across countries, regions, and time periods, along with a range of analytical functions, including: Search including saved searches that refresh automatically. Mapping enables you to create a visual display of data and trends across countries. Multiple databanks ability to compare data across multiple databases to asses the impact of alternative scenarios Download allows you to download tables, graphs and maps in a variety of formats for insertion into presentations. Excel plug-in so that you can easily sort and export data to pre-formatted Excel sheets.
28 Continuous improvement Despite the good performance of the Oxford Global Economic Model, the model undergoes continuous improvement to align it to today s complex and dynamic global marketplace. Recent examples include: Expanding the range of interest rates and balance sheet indicators to better reflect how changes in credit conditions impact the economy vital to analysing both the Eurozone crisis and the impact of central bank quantitative easing programs. Breaking down GDP into 12 high-level sectors, so clients can quantify the impact of a scenario on the manufacturing compared with, say, construction or financial services. Forecasting changes to sovereign credit ratings, to show how these would shift under alternative economic scenarios and their implications for bond yields. Introduction of other risk indicators, showing how trade credit, regulatory and political risk are also likely to shift under changing economic conditions Detailed modelling of trade in liquefied natural gas (LNG) to quantify how different scenarios for the shale revolution will impact on global energy markets Expansion off indicators to meet client requirements, including additional variables for CCAR stress testing and breakdown of Canada by province.
