Generalizing the Taylor Principle: Reply
AbstractFarmer, Waggoner, and Zha (2009) (FWZ) show that a new Keynesian model with regime-switching monetary policy can support multiple solutions, appearing to contradict findings in Davig and Leeper (2007) (DL). The explanation is straightforward: FWZ derive solutions using a model that differs from the one to which the DL conditions apply. The FWZ solutions also require that the exogenous driving process is a function of private and policy parameters. This undermines the sharp distinctions among "deep parameters" typical of optimizing models and makes it difficult to ascribe economic interpretations to FWZ's additional solutions.
