A simple check for VAR representations of DSGE models
The present paper shows that there is a simple way to check whether a DSGE model can be represented by a finite order VAR. This consists in verifying that the eigenvalues of a certain matrix defined in Fernandez-Villaverde et al. (2007) are all equal to zero. Further we show that this condition is equivalent to the one in Ravenna (2007), which is, however, not easily applicable.
