 THE ECONOMETRICS OF MACROECONOMIC MODELLING

# Factorization

Finally, we shall take a look at this very elegant method introduced by Sargent. It consists of the following steps:

1. Write the model in terms of lead - and lag-polynomials in expectations.

2. Factor the polynomials, into one-order polynomials, deriving the roots.

3. Invert the factored one-order polynomials into the directions of converging forward polynomials of expectations.

Again, we use the simplifying definition

zt = bp2Xt + £pt:

so the model is again

Apt = bp1EtApt+i + bpiApt-i + zt.

Note that the forward, or lead, operator, F, and lag operator, L, only work on the variables and not expectations, so:

LEtzt = Etzt-i

FEtZt = Etzt+i L-i = F.

The model can then be written in terms of expectations as:

-bpiEtApt+i + EtApt - bpEApt-i = EtZt, and using the lead - and lag-operators:

(-bpiF + 1 — bpiL)EtApt = Etzt,     or, as a second-order polynomial in the lead operator:   The polynomial in brackets is exactly the same as the one in (A.12), so we know it can be factored into the roots (A.13):

However, we know that (1/1-(1/a2)F) = ^=0(1/a2)iFi, since |1/a2| < 1,      so we can write down the solution immediately:

where we have also substituted back for zt.

To derive the complete solution, we have to solve for Etxt+i

given

(1 bXL)xt Єxt.

We can now appeal to the results of Sargent (1987, p. 304) that work as follows. If the model can be written in the form

yt = Etyt+- + xta(L)xt + et,

r

a(L) =1 -^2 aj L°

j=-

with the partial solution

yt = (A)i Et'xt+i,

i=o

 1 - XL- r — 1 a(X)—1 1 + £ Y, Xk—jau I Lj j=1 k=j+1

 The solution therefore becomes Apt - a.1 Apt—1 = 1

 o1^2 .            then the complete solution

as before.
