9780521264440: Optimal Control, Expectations and Uncertainty

The rational expectations revolution and other developments in economics (notably game theory) have fundamentally altered the application of optimal control theory to economic forecasting and planning. In particular, they have shown that economic systems cannot be modeled simplistically on physical systems. However, as the authors show, these developments have greatly enhanced our understanding of how an economy functions, and now make it possible for optimal control theory to be applied much more effectively to economic modeling and planning.

Book Description:

The rational expectations revolution (notably game theory) has fundamentally altered the application of optimal control theory to economic forecasting and planning. In particular, it has shown that economic systems cannot be modelled simplistically on physical systems. However, as the authors of this volume show, this and other economic developments have greatly enhanced our understanding of how an economy functions.

Review:

"...a nicely written book that covers a wealth of optimization tools originating from optimal and stochastic control and game theory, in a context of policy making in economics....a good introduction to the topic for those who would want to pursue research in dynamic decision making under uncertainty." Tamer Ba^D,sar, Mathematical Reviews

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The rational expectations revolution and other developments in economics (notably game theory) have fundamentally altered the application of optimal control theory to economic forecasting and planning. In particular, they have shown that economic systems cannot be modelled simplistically on physical systems. However, as the authors of this volume show, these developments have greatly enhanced our understanding of how an economy functions, and now make it possible for optimal control theory to be applied much more effectively to economic modelling and planning. This book is divided into two parts. The first presents the orthodox framework but extends it to allow for multiplicative uncertainty, risk and non-linearities in the econometric model. The second part looks explicitly at the question of expectations. It provides methods by which forward-looking expectations can be treated jointly with the determination of economic policy. It also examines game-theoretic considerations - where, for instance, policy makers may have incentive to renege on their commitments. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521264440
