Minsky is a visual tool for designing dynamic, monetary macroeconomic models. The first full release of the program, codenamed the “Aquinas” release, has been developed courtesy of a grant from INET. It is now available for download:
The Sourceforge development page, which will always have the latest version and of course the source code, is here:
We also have a help file which, though incomplete, provides an introduction to dynamic modeling as well as an explanation of the basic functions in Minsky.
The Kickstarter campaign raised $78,050, which after Kickstarter and Amazon fees plus the cost of the rewards to pledgers (and plus some donations outside of Kickstarter itself) gave us about A$65,000 to continue development. I am also applying for another INET Grant to add some serious additional functionality to Minsky, including the capacity to model input-output dynamics and a novel multidimensional data storage and display system.
