Abstract

In this paper, I compare the accuracy, efficiency and stability of different numerical strategies for computing approximate solutions to the nonlinear rational expectations commodity market model. I find that polynomial and spline function collocation methods are superior to the space discretization, linearization and least squares curve-fitting methods that have been preferred by economists in the past.
