Abstract

We develop and calibrate a comprehensive model of the world and the calibrators calibrating it. The model is general in the sense that it takes into account not only the relevant, but also the irrelevant features of the economic environment. One of the byproducts of the analysis is the World Formula which (among other things) is capable of explaining everything.
