General Equilibrium Models have become a powerful tool of policy analysis in recent years. We provide an overview of the theoretical concept of Applied General Equilibrium Framework by reviewing the standard theory of producer and consumer behaviour. Moreover we discuss several popular extensions of the basic model, such as international trade, different forms of dynamics and fiscal activities. We bridge the gap from theoretical analysis to practical economic issues by surveying important fields of applied research such as public finance. Finally, we analyse the effects of a current tax reform proposal on the German economy with respect to economic growth, tax revenue and the labour market.
