Hi everyone

I’m trying to numerically solve the system of equations from Uribe (2020)'s The Neo-Fisher Effect: Econometric Evidence from Models Empirical and Optimizing Models (paper in the attachments if needed). The model contains 8 equilibrium conditions and 6 shocks. I’ve attached screenshots of the model.

In the model, I’ve put exp() around all the variables so Dynare can linearise the model (I’ve also linearised everything by hand with a 1st-order Taylor expansion). Also, I’m not sure how correct my steady state is. And when I run my code, in the dak.mod file, I receive the following errors.

Error using print_info (line 32)

The steadystate file did not compute the steady state

Error in steady (line 102)

print_info(info,options_.noprint, options_);

Error in dk.driver (line 350)

steady;

Error in dynare (line 293)

evalin(‘base’,[fname ‘.driver’]) ;

Would anyone know if the code is written correctly for the model with exp() being around every variable to linearise the model? And, if the steady state is incorrect, how do I properly calculate it? Any other errors or advice? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
