The model is calibrated and solved numerically. In equilibrium, because domestic residents are ambiguity-averse, they bet against productivity abroad being high, thus lowering their holding of foreign equity relative to the benchmark, no-ambiguity model. Thus, consumption correlations across countries fall significantly. Moreover, foreign real investment behaves differently than in the benchmark mod
