# Colinear equations problems

Dear professor jpfeifer:
When we run the modeltwo.mod file in dynare, the error information is coming up with the following message:
………

model_diagnostic: the Jacobian of the static model is singular
there is 5 colinear relationships between the variables and the equations

The presence of a singularity problem typically indicates that there is one
redundant equation entered in the model block, while another non-redundant equation
is missing. The problem often derives from Walras Law.
Error using print_info (line 42)
Blanchard Kahn conditions are not satisfied: no stable equilibrium

Error in stoch_simul (line 98)
print_info(info, options_.noprint, options_);

Error in modeltwo (line 841)
info = stoch_simul(var_list_);

Error in dynare (line 180)
evalin(‘base’,fname) ;

In generally, how do we to solve the Colinear equations problems?

Thank you much for your help and support!
The mod file as follows:
Modeltwo.mod (10.7 KB)

Just the usual generic advice: start with a simple® version of the model and see where the problem comes from. With a model that big, there is not much hope of debugging.
