A MODEL OF NEAR-RATIONAL EXUBERANCE

Macroeconomic Dynamics, 2010, vol. 14, issue 2, 166-188

Abstract: We study how the use of judgment or “add-factors†in forecasting may disturb the set of equilibrium outcomes when agents learn by using recursive methods. We isolate conditions under which new phenomena, which we call exuberance equilibria, can exist in a standard self-referential environment. Local indeterminacy is not a requirement for existence. We construct a simple asset-pricing example and find that exuberance equilibria, when they exist, can be extremely volatile relative to fundamental equilibria.
