Hi all - I thought it might be of interest to this group:
For my master's thesis, I've been working on a model of the financialization of the housing market in Beirut. The model explores the effect of imposing a vacancy tax on housing units, to see if it pushes investors to place their units on the market instead of holding them vacant.
I decided to put the model online for the thesis defence (which will happen in a couple of weeks). You can view it here:
There's a lot to explain about what the model is about and what it does, but unfortunately, the way that the web interface of Mesa is structured right now, it doesn't allow for a landing page with explanation. Maybe we can work on that next!
Let me know if you have any questions,
