Long Run Equilibrium, The Values Of Inflation And The Supply Shocks Are At Their Mean Values

- At long-run equilibrium, the values of inflation and both demand and supply shocks are at their mean values (π_t=π_(t-1),ε_t=v_t=0) Hence long-run equilibrium inflation, π_t=π_(t-1)=π* = 3% From Adaptive expectation, we have 〖 E〗_t (π_(t+1) )=E_(t-1) (π_t), substituting into Phillips curve, we obtained the long-run equilibrium output, Yt = Y ̅_t = 100. Given Monetary policy rule i_t=π_t+ρ+θ_π*(π_t-π_t^* )+θ_Y*(Y_t-Y ̅_t ) and the fact that at long-run equilibrium, inflation is at its target and output equals natural output, we get long-run equilibrium nominal interest rates i_t=π_t+ρ=3+4=7%; from Fisher equation and Adaptive expectation, we get the real long-run interest rate of r_t=i_t-π_t=...   [tags: Inflation, Supply and demand, Macroeconomics]
