Does someone have a ‘dynare-free’ implementation of Occbin?
I am not aware of anything like this as you would not just need OccBin but also a way to do the first order approximation of the model outside of Dynare. That is cumbersome to program. Why do you need it?
Thanks a lot for your quick reply! Here is why:
I have build my own Matlab toolbox for solving and estimating DSGE models. Part of this toolbox is made of programs written by others, including Dynare teams.
I would like extend my toolboox by including Occbin in it, without relying on Dynare outputs.
I used to do the first order approximation “by hand”, so this would not be a problem.
I’m still using Dynare but mainly to check part of results when they are available with Dynare!
I understand that it is cumbersome as it is like reinventing the wheel.
Best, and stay safe!
