Mechanics of forming and estimating dynamic linear economies

No 182, Staff Report from Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis

Abstract: This paper catalogues formulas that are useful for estimating dynamic linear economic models. We describe algorithms for computing equilibria of an economic model and for recursively computing a Gaussian likelihood function and its gradient with respect to parameters. We display an application to Rosen, Murphy, and Scheinkman's (1994) model of cattle cycles.
