Commentary: Some Methodological Suggestions


  • Fumio Hayashi

    (Graduate School of International Corporate Strategy, Hitotsubashi University)


Methodological suggestions are made for two separate issues. First, I show how a consistent estimate of the level of the expected inflation can be gleaned from inflation swap rates. Second, I indicate how the dynamic general equilibrium model in question can be modified to generate the observed persistence in commodity price movements.
