Solution Algorithm to a Class of Monetary Rational Equilibrium Macromodels with Optimal Monetary Policy Design



In this paper an extended algorithm using well-known solution methods for monetary models characterized by rational expectations and optimal monetary policy design is given. The extension enables first the use of broad dynamic interdependencies within the structural model of the economy, second stochastic shocks on all endogenous variables and third commitment to a policy displaying no time inconsistency problem. All these points are not entirely new, but are seldom included into an operational solution algorithm. Furthermore a computational improvement concerning the splitting process for the stable and unstable part of the solution is proposed.
