Numerical Simulation of Nonoptimal Dynamic Equilibrium Models
In this paper we present a recursive method for the numerical simulation of nonoptimal dynamic equilibrium models. This method builds upon a convergent operator over an expanded set of state variables. The fixed point of this operator defines the set of all Markovian equilibria. We study approximation properties of the operator. We also apply our numerical algorithm to various models with heterogeneous agents, incomplete financial markets, exogenous and endogenous borrowing constraints, taxes, and money.
