I just download Christiano and Fisher (2000). The code I posted a couple of days ago for the Ramsey model can be used to solve a deterministic version of the model they analyze. I have code for a stochastic version of the problem as well, but want to tweak the output a bit before I post it on GitHub. Thanks for the suggestions!David R.

Also, Pontus Rendahl has a working paper "Inequality Constraints and Euler Equation based Solution Methods" with some theory and examples on dynamic programming with binding constraints.ivansmlhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00955626621561436702noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-325397004329727405.post-57969097726301182062013-02-17T06:55:22.051-05:002013-02-17T06:55:22.051-05:00I would prefer that it be microfounded.

The Evans and Jovanovic (1989, JPE) model has an ad-hoc credit constraint but it is quite a cool little model.Alfredhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17322904245393952976noreply@blogger.com
