Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models

The papers presented in this August 2005 workshop examine Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models. The distinguishing feature of these models is that the parameters reflect the preferences and constraints (both technological and institutional) faced by economic agents. The workshop themes included monetary and fiscal policies, business cycles in small open economies and Bayesian estimation methods.
