This course consists of two parts. The first part introduces tools for solving and estimating linearized, full-information, dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models. Students will develop tools in matlab to solve and estimate medium-scale DSGE models using several approaches. Part two of the course explores alternatives to the linearized, full-information, rational expectations paradigm. Students will write a final paper which incorporates at least one of these alternatives.

Solving the linearized RBC model with a stochastic trend, example code.
A second version of the same model, using matlab to output a non-symbolic file for fast evaluation.
A third version of the same model, though with stationary productivity, solved using value function iteration.
