I’m trying to run the mod file for dynare working paper 36 (“Tax Reduction Policies of the Productive Sector and Its Impacts on Brazilian Economy”), but when I do I get the following error:
error: invalid character '∩' (ASCII 239) near line 226, column 2 parse error near line 226 of file dynarewp036.m syntax error >>> ∩╗┐ ^ error: called from: error: c:\dynare\4.4.3\matlab\dynare.m at line 180, column 1
I haven’t made any changes to the .mod file, and I’m using Dynare 4.4.3 and Octave 3.8.4. There’s nothing in the .mod file itself that is jumping out at me as being a problem, any thoughts on what could be causing this? As a note, opening dynarewp036.m and deleting line 226 does nothing, Dynare just re-creates the file with the same error when you run dynarewp036.mod again.
Files are attached.
