Abstract: I provide an application of the method by estimating a non-linear DSGE model of an economy with a banking sector that faces a collateral constraint. In this setting, bank capital is a key state variable. The economy exhibits an important non-linearity, as negative shocks to bank capital have a much more detrimental effect on real activity when the health of the banking sector is poor, than when banks are well-capitalized. Estimates of the non-linear model, based on the novel method here, suggest that this non-linearity is quantitatively powerful in US and Euro Area data.
