Matlab code for Real Business Cycle Models: Linear Approximation and GMM Estimation


  • Craig Burnside

    (University of Virginia)


Matlab programs to solve RBC models through the linear approximation of Euler equations, as described by King, Plosser, Rebelo (1988). The programs are accompanied by extensive notes that describe the methodology. Example programs include: the divisible labor model of King, Plosser, Rebelo (1998), the indivisble labor model of Hansen (1985), the labor hoarding model of Burnside, Eichenbaum, Rebelo (1993) and the indivisible labor model with government of Christiano, Eichenbaum (1992).
