Development of market economies towards economies based on knowledge implies the construction of new long-term macroeconometric models. The structure and use of the long-term W8D model for Poland was shown. This is a complete model that explains production and the factors its growth including R&D and human capital and also final demand allowing for studies of potential disequilibria. It is closed by equations explaining prices, wages and financial flows. The simulation version is includes 235 equations, of which 111 are stochastic. It is used in long-term growth scenarios up to the year 2030.
