This paper documents the theoretical structure of an extension of the Norges Bank policy model NEMO. New features include an explicit treatment of the credit market, including a separate banking sector, a role for housing services and house prices, and the option of using macro-prudential instruments as the LTV-ratio and capital requirements as policy instruments. The model rely on building blocks from the recent literature on the interaction between the financial sector and the real economy.
