Finding a steady state

Does any one can help me,

I do not know why it is so hard to find the SS value although I can find analytically.
When I run dynare, it said The steadystate file did not compute the steady state.
Please let me know which equation I might make a mistake in steady state file.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi All,

I am a new user of dynare.
I would be appreciate if you can help me why the code doesn’t work.

Thank you

As far as I can see, your model variables are not logged (no exp()-substitution, see Pfeifer(2013): “A Guide to Specifying Observation Equations for the Estimation of DSGE Models”, but in your steady state file you take the logs. For example,

zz = zz(-1)^RHOz*exp(ez); %19
has steady state 1, but in the steady state file, you assign

zz = log(Zz);
where Zz is 1.

Also please use the general structure of the steady state file demonstrated in NK_baseline_steady_state.m instead of the strange one you use. Selectively setting parameters is prone to errors.
