On the estimation of Euler equations in the presence of a potential regime shift

No 6/1999, Bank of Finland Research Discussion Papers from Bank of Finland

Abstract: The concept of a peso problem is formalized in terms of a linear Euler equation and a nonlinear marginal model describing the dynamics of the exogenous driving process.It is shown that, using a threshold autoregressive model as a marginal model, it is possible to produce time-varying peso premia.A Monte Carlo method and a method based on the numerical solution of integral equations are considered as tools for computing conditional future expectations in the marginal model.A Monte Carlo study illustrates the poor performance of the generalized method of moment (GMM) estimator in small and even relatively large samples.The poor performance is particularly acute in the presence of a peso problem but is also serious in the simple linear case.
