Gemodel 3.2 simulates neo-classical economic models such as those found in price theory, public finance, international trade, and economic development textbooks. This software is designed to calculate numerical solutions for non-linear general equilibrium models so that the comparative static results of economic theory may be illustrated. Policy analysis can also be undertaken. Production is modelled using a variable return CES production function for two or three industries, whilst consumption is represented using a CES utility function for 1-19 household classes. The model can also be used in international trade, public finance and welfare. Users will need to purchase a license to use the software.

zTree (Zurich Toolbox for Readymade Economic Experiments) allows the creation and running of economic experiments over a network, without any programming knowledge. Features include data saving, time display, profit calculation and tools for screen layout. A number of games and auctions are available for free download. It can be used for a wide range of possible experiments such as public good experiments, structured bargaining experiments or markets - including double auctions and Dutch auctions. Users need to sign a license agreement to use the software.
