EABCN/CEPR/SNB workshop on estimation and empirical validation of structural models for business cycle analysis, 29-30 August 2006

The EABCN/CEPR/SNB workshop brought together the latest advances in theoretical and empirical analysis of business cycles from researchers in both academia and central banks. The seventh workshop of its kind was devoted to the presentation of papers that focused on estimation and evaluation of dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models. Papers that developed new tools, as well as empirical applications where existing methods are used in a novel way were presented. Several papers compared different methods or algorithms for estimating DSGE models, others focused on identification issues in DSGE models and developed econometric tools for empirical validation.
