Structural macro-wconometric modelling in a policy environment

Contents:

Author Info

Abstract

In this paper we review the evolution of macroeconomic modelling in a policy environment that took placeover the past sixty years. We identify and characterise four generations of macro models. Particular attention is paid to the fourth generation – dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models. We discuss some of the problems in how these models are implemented and quantified.
