Models are meant to represent known or conjectured relationships in a form that may allow us to experiment on the model, even when we cannot experiment on the thing that is modeled. These days models are often virtual, existing only on a computer. Originally, however, models were nearly always physical. Aeronautical engineers, starting with the Wright brothers, used models of airplanes in wind tunnels to discover how real airplanes will perform in flight. Civil engineers used models of river systems to learn about the hydrology of actual rivers.

1), then consumption would follow the path, starting in 2010 of C = 950; 1,150; 1,264; . . This is a conditional forecast because we believe that the forecast of consumption is correct only to the extent that the assumption about the path of GDP turns out to be true. 1) is not falsified: garbage in, garbage out. However, if GDP turned out to be just as forecasted (1,331) and actual consumption turned out to be 1,150, it would count against the model. Similarly, if GDP turned out to be something different from what was forecasted (say, 1,500) but consumption failed to conform to the model (say, it was 1,200 rather than 1,425), that too would count against the model.

Positive errors always cancel out negative errors) and the variability of the errors is minimized (for example, a β for which the errors are on average close to zero is preferred to one in which they are far from zero, even if they cancel out in both cases). 15). The other main use of models is to conduct counterfactual experiments. As we already saw, it is difficult to conduct controlled economic experiments and almost impossible to conduct controlled macroeconomic experiments on actual economies.
