Matching Theory and Data: Bayesian Vector Autoregression and Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium Models
No ECO2009/29, Economics Working Papers from European University Institute
This paper shows how to identify the structural shocks of a Vector Autoregression (VAR) while simultaneously estimating a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model that is not assumed to replicate the data-generating process. It proposes a framework for estimating the parameters of the VAR model and the DSGE model jointly: the VAR model is identified by sign restrictions derived from the DSGE model; the DSGE model is estimated by matching the corresponding impulse response functions.
