LEARNING RATIONAL EXPECTATIONS IN A POLICY GAME

Martin Cripps

No 268333, Economic Research Papers from University of Warwick - Department of Economics

Abstract: Rational expectations is a maintained assumption in the analysis of economic policy. Here we examine how two types of learning rational expectations (rational and econometric) affect the time profile of optimal policy. In both cases the government adopts policies which delay convergence to rational expectations. There is also a. reduction in the inflationary bias, in one case permanently in the other temporarily.
