Abstract

Using Bayesian estimation techniques, we estimate a small open economyDSGE model with credit-market imperfections for the Colombian economy. Us-ing the estimated model we investigate what are the sources of business cycle°uctuations. We show that balance-sheet e®ects play an important role in ex-plaining recent Colombian business cycles. We then perform a counterfactualexercise that shows that ¯xed exchange rate regime could have exacerbated the¯nancial distress in the economy between 1998-1999.
