Recursive macroeconomic theory by Lars Ljungqvist ( )
37 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 1,412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Recursive methods offer a powerful approach for characterizing and solving complicated problems in dynamic macroeconomics. Recursive Macroeconomic Theory provides both an introduction to recursive methods and advanced material, mixing tools and sample applications. The second edition contains substantial revisions to about half the original material, and extensive additional coverage appears in seven chapters new to this edition. The updated and added material covers new topics that further illustrate the power and pervasiveness of recursive methods."--BOOK JACKET

Rational expectations and econometric practice by Robert E Lucas ( Book )
26 editions published between 1977 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Assumptions about how people form expectations for the future shape the properties of any dynamic economic model. To make economic decisions in an uncertain environment people must forecast such variables as future rates of inflation, tax rates, governme
The big problem of small change by Thomas J Sargent ( Book )
18 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Big Problem of Small Change offers the first credible and analytically sound explanation of how a problem that dogged monetary authorities for hundreds of years was finally solved. Thomas Sargent and Francois Velde examine the evolution of Western European economies through the lens of one of the classic problems of monetary history - the recurring scarcity and depreciation of small change. Through penetrating and clearly worded analysis, they tell the story of how monetary technologies, doctrines, and practices evolved from 1300 to 1850; of how the "standard formula" was devised to address an age-old dilemma without causing inflation." "This is a keenly argued, richly imaginative, and attractively illustrated study. All those intrigued by monetary history will recognize this book for the standard that it is."--BOOK JACKET

The conquest of American inflation by Thomas J Sargent ( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Conquest of American Inflation, Thomas J. Sargent presents an analysis of the rise and fall of U.S. inflation after 1960. He examines two broad explanations for the behavior of inflation and unemployment in this period: the natural rate hypothesis joined to the Lucas critique and a more traditional econometric policy evaluation modified to include adaptive expectations and learning. His purpose is not only to determine which is the better account, but also to codify for the benefit of the next generation the economic forces that cause inflation. Providing an original methodological link between theoretical and policy economics, this book will engender much debate and become an indispensable text for academics, graduate students, and professional economists
Bounded rationality in macroeconomics / Thomas J. Sargent by Thomas J Sargent ( Book )
32 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Focusing on a new development in economic theory which involves bounded or limited rationality, the author describes two laboratory experiments that test versions of his macroeconomic models. He analyzes some promising applications of the methods surveyed
Robustness by Lars Peter Hansen ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The standard theory of decision making under uncertainty advises the decision maker to form a statistical model linking outcomes to decisions and then to choose the optimal distribution of outcomes. This assumes that the decision maker trusts the model completely. But what should a decision maker do if the model cannot be trusted?" "Lars Hansen and Thomas Sargent, two leading macroeconomists, push the field forward as they set about answering this question. They adapt robust control techniques and apply them to economics. By using this theory to let decision makers acknowledge misspecification in economic modeling, the authors develop applications to a variety of problems in dynamic macroeconomics."--BOOK JACKET

Macroeconomics at the service of public policy by Thomas J Sargent ( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume uses state of the art models from the frontier of macroeconomics to answer key questions about how the economy functions and how policy should be conducted. The contributions cover a wide range of issues in macroeconomics and macroeconomic policy. They combine high level mathematics with economic analysis, and highlight the need to update our mathematical toolbox in order to understand the increased complexity of the macroeconomic environment. The volume represents hard evidence of high research intensity in many fields of macroeconomics, and warns against interpreting the scope of macroeconomics too narrowly. The mainstream business cycle analysis, based on dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) modelling of a particular type, has been criticised for its inability to predict or resolve the recent financial crisis. However, macroeconomic research on financial, information, and learning imperfections had not yet made their way into many of the pre-crisis DSGE models because practical econometric versions of those models were mainly designed to fit data periods that did not include financial crises. A major response to the limitations of those older DSGE models is an active research program to bring big financial shocks and various kinds of financial, learning, and labour market frictions into a new generation of DSGE models for guiding policy. The contributors to this book utilise models and modelling assumptions that go beyond particular modelling conventions. By using alternative yet plausible assumptions, they seek to enrich our knowledge and ability to explain macroeconomic phenomena. They contribute to expanding the frontier of macroeconomic knowledge in ways that will prove useful for macroeconomic policy
Rational expectations and inflation by Thomas J Sargent ( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of essays uses the lens of rational expectations theory to examine how governments anticipate and plan for inflation, and provides insight into the pioneering research for which Thomas Sargent was awarded the 2011 Nobel Prize in economics. Rational expectations theory is based on the simple premise that people will use all the information available to them in making economic decisions, yet applying the theory to macroeconomics and econometrics is technically demanding. Here, Sargent engages with practical problems in economics in a less formal, noneconometric way, demonstrat
