Bayesian State Space Representation Model: Applications to Macroeconomics and International Finance
Bayesian State Space Representation Model: Applications to Macroeconomics and International Finance by Hiroshi Morita This dissertation develops three new econometric models using Bayesian state
Monetary Transmission Channels in DSGE Models: Decomposition of Impulse Response Functions Approach
The paper presents decomposition of impulse response functions (IRFs) as a new diagnostic tool for dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models. This method works with any DSGE model of
This thesis consists of three essays in commodity price dynamics. In the first essay, we embed a staggered price feature into the speculative storage model of Deaton and Laroque (1996). Intermediate
Money aggregates, monetary transmissions, and the business cycle
This thesis formulates, calibrates, and simulates Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models to investigate the monetary transmission mechanism and the real impacts of monetary policy in a
New Keynesian DSGE models: theory, empirical implementation, and specification
The core of the dissertation consists of three chapters. Chapter 2 provides a graphical and formal representation of a basic dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) economy and discusses the
Quarterly Bayesian DSGE Model of Pakistan Economy with Informality
In this paper we use the Bayesian methodology to estimate the structural and shocks‟ parameters of the DSGE model in Ahmad et al. (2012). This model includes formal and informal firms both at
The Conceptual Flaw in the Microeconomic Foundations of Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium Models
ABSTRACT First-generation dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models have been criticized for their lack of financial markets but, more perceptively, for their barter properties. This note
Microfoundations of a monetary policy, Poole's rule
Abstract. The monetary policy framework of many countries has been developed under an Inflation Targeting Framework, which is a fixed central bank interest rate. The well-known Taylor's Rule is the
Dynamic effects of changes to Japanese immigration policy
This paper constructs a multi-sector dynamic general equilibrium model for a trading economy. We incorporate three major factors of production: capital, skilled labor & unskilled labor. We solve and
The Real Business Cycle Model for Lesotho
This paper modi…es Hansen’s model of indivisible labour, to include labour exports, which is parameterised and calibrated to mimic some of the Lesotho economy’s distinctive features. Of particular
