Brief Description:

The first part of this course introduces some basic tools for solving and estimating linearized, full-information, dynamic-stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models.  Coursework consists of three problem sets with a heavy computational emphasis. You will spend a great deal of time programming in matlab.  After completing these problem sets, each student will have an extensive ``toolbox" of programs that she can use to address empirical questions in a structural manner.
