Cointegrated VAR Analyses of a Hybrid DSGE and SVAR Model

Xuxin Mao, Institute of Mathematical Economics (IMW) , Bielefeld University, Germany

The paper provides cointegrated VAR analyses of Ireland's Hybrid Real Business Cycle models, which are constructed by a DSGE model and then supplemented by a Structural VAR model to analyze the autocorrelated error terms identified by economic theories. By testing the hypotheses which Ireland used to build his model, we find most of themare not valid. Then we construct our own Cointergrated VAR model with identified long-run and short-run structures.
