The Method of Endogenous Gridpoints for Solving Dynamic Stochastic Optimization Problems
AbstractThis paper introduces a method for solving numerical dynamic stochastic optimization problems that avoids rootfinding operations. The idea is applicable to many microeconomic and macroeconomic problems, including life cycle, buffer-stock, and stochastic growth problems. Software is provided.
