Structural Uncertainty and Monetary Stabilization Policy
Birkbeck College.
1983 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The article examines what the presence of structural uncertainty implies for the formulation of monetary stabilization policy in rational-expectations models of the Sargent-Wallace type. The policy ineffectiveness proposition if Sargent and Wallace is interpreted as a special case of Theil's certainty equivalence theorem. This theorem breaks down when there is structural uncetainty of the multiplicative-disturbance variety. Thereby a rationale for monetary stabilization policy under rational expectations is provided.
