No 6319, Working Papers from South African Reserve Bank
In this paper a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model is specified for the South African economy. Nominal andreal frictions help to make the model estimable, and is then estimated on South African and global data using Bayesian techniques. The empirical fit of the model is validated through a forecast comparison with private sector consensus forecasts. The model is found to outperform the inflation forecasts of private sector economists.
