  • Gapminder (Awesome app that converts international statistics into moving, interactive and enjoyable graphics!)
  • isimulate (iSimulate is a free platform for performing economic simulations. It allows individuals anywhere in the world to access some of The World Bank’s macroeconomic models across the internet.)
  • Global Income Distribution Dynamics (GIDD) [The GIDD includes distributional data for 121 countries and covers 90 percent of the world population.

  • Development policy analysis with MAMS [MAMS is a flexible tool that can be run in different versions that differ in data needs. For example, for analysis of macro issues, it is sufficient to use a version with minimal data needs; analysis of MDG strategies requires a version with additional sectoral disaggregation and a more detailed database.]
  • ENVISAGE Climate change model [World Bank’s Environmental Impact and Sustainability Applied General Equilibrium (ENVISAGE) Model is designed to analyze a variety of issues related to the economics of climate change]
