Description

This textbook provides a detailed summary of the key elements of The Stochastic Growth Model.

Preface

This article presents the stochastic growth model. The stochastic growth model is a stochastic version of the neoclassical growth model with microfoundations,1 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,2 and to solve the linearized model with the method of undetermined coefficients. This solution method is due to Campbell (1994).


The set-up of the stochastic growth model is given in the next section. Section 3 solves for the steady state, around which the model is linearized in section 4. The linearized model is then solved in section 5. Section 6 shows how the economy responds to stochastic shocks. Some concluding remarks are given in section 7.
