Abstract This paper discusses an experimental study on the formation of expectation within a New Keynesian macroeconomic framework. The novelty of this paper (one of the earlier paper) is that each subject was asked to forecast both the inflation rate and output gap at the same time, which is an improvement over the existing literature. We find a lot of heterogeneity in expectation formation and also the model switching nature by the subjects.
