Working Papers Central Bank of Chile from Central Bank of Chile

Abstract: The Extended Model for Analysis and Simulations (XMAS) is the Central Bank of Chile's newest dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model for macroeconomic projections and monetary policy analysis. Building on Medina and Soto (2007), the model includes several new features, in line with recent developments in the modeling of small open economies, particularly commodityexporting emerging economies such as Chile. The extensions over the base model include the modeling of non-core inflation dynamics, a commodity sector with endogenous production and investment, a labor market with search and matching frictions that allows for labor variation on both the intensive and extensive margins, an augmented fiscal block, as well as additional shocks and other real and nominal frictions. These features allow for a more granular analysis and more comprehensive forecasts of the Chilean economy, improving the fit of the model to macroeconomic data in several dimensions.
