Has anyone ever modelled the Global Economy?

I'm curious if this has ever been done as it is probably one of the most pressing issues for humanity. A stable global economic system. We don't have one. Most economists are speculators. Has anyone tried to model the system in a similar way to the climate or matter in the universe?

(PS: I'm new here! )

Re: Has anyone ever modelled the Global Economy?

Yes. In fact I think it's a standard test of a new microeconomic model to simulate it and see what its macroeconomic effects would be and if those are consistent with current macro knowledge.

Using the simulation to predict outcomes is a bit dicier, since the economy is highly dynamic/chaotic.
