CEPII, Recherche et Expertise sur l'economie mondiale


EconMap is the database developed by the CEPII in 2010 to picture the world economy in the long term.

Based on a three-factor production function of labour, capital and energy, plus two forms of technological change, we propose various long-run growth scenarios for 170 countries at the 2100 horizon, relying on the model MaGE (Macroeconometrics of the Global Economy). Our model is fitted with United Nations, International Labour Office and Energy Information Administration projections and econometric estimations of (i) capital accumulation, (ii) saving rates, (iii) relationship between saving rates and investment rates, (iv) education, (v) female participation, and (vi) technological progress (which includes energy and total factor productivity).

The data files cover GDP at constant and variable relative prices, together with the production factors and technological change, for each of the 170 countries, from 1980 to 2100.

Our projections present four charateristics.

First, we account for energy constraints by including its consumption in the production function and by taking account of rents accruing to oil exporting countries.

Second, we estimate a non-unitary relationship between savings and investment, departing from the assumptions of closed economy and full capital mobility.

Third, we model female participation rates consistently with education catch-up.

Finally, we disentangle real gross domestic product (GDP) growth rates from relative price effects through a consistent Balassa-Samuelson effect.
