The macroeconomics of rational bubbles: a user's guide

Alberto Martin and Jaume Ventura ()

Economics Working Papers from Department of Economics and Business, Universitat Pompeu Fabra

Abstract: This paper provides a guide to macroeconomic applications of the theory of rational bubbles. It shows that rational bubbles can be easily incorporated into standard macroeconomic models, and illustrates how they can be used to account for important macroeconomic phenomena. It also discusses the welfare implications of rational bubbles and the role of policy in managing them. Finally, it provides a detailed review of the literature.
