by Koen Vermeylen
Publisher: BookBoon 2010
Number of pages: 32
This text presents the stochastic growth model. The stochastic growth model is a stochastic version of the neoclassical growth model with microfoundations, and provides the backbone of a lot of macroeconomic models that are used in modern macroeconomic research. The most popular way to solve the stochastic growth model, is to linearize the model around a steady state, and to solve the linearized model with the method of undetermined coefficients.
