Dear All,

I’m trying to understand how to solve the most simple, static model.

I can do it with GAMS, and I am trying to do the same with Dynare.

I think my problem lies with the fact that GAMS solves with Mixed Complementarity, while Dynare linearizes… ???

I must add that I don’t (yet) know how to use Matlab.

However, this is basically have a system of 7 variables and 7 equations. Dynare finds a “spurious convergence”, while I get a convergence in GAMS.

The initial values that I’m using are the GAMS convergence, which should be correct.

Here is the model.

1 agent with a Cobb-Douglas utility. Consumes X, Y

2 production sectors, using K, L in Cobb-Douglas. World is endowed with K=1, L=1.

Tax is my shock parameter, which is transfered to the Agent.

I’m attaching both Dynare and GAMS code, and a pdf file of the equations.

Hope someone there can give me direction.

Thanks, Erez
