# Input model to dynare

Hi everyone,

I am trying to insert my model into dynare, however for some reason I get an error code (example.mod:16.68: syntax error, unexpected ‘;’) I have been perusing the code but can’t spot the error. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Tartaglia

var x i pi y n r;

varexo u m a;

parameters beta sigma phi rho theta kappa;

beta = 0.78;
sigma = 1.98;
phi = 1.04;
rho = 0.08;
theta = 0.69;
kappa = (1-beta)(1-thetabeta)*(phi+sigma)/theta;

model;
x=x(+1)-(1/sigma)(i-pi(+1)-(rho+sigma(1+phi/(sigma+phi))(1-rho)a;
x=y-(1+phi)/(phi+sigma)a;
n=y-a;
n=beta
n(+1)+kappa
x+u;
i=phi
i(-1)+phipi+phix+m;
u=rhou(-1)+epsilon_u;
m=rho
m(-1)+epsilon_m;
a=rho*a(-1)+epsilon_a;
r=i-pi;
end;

initval;
x = 0;
i = 0;
pi = 2;
/y = 0/
n = 0;
r = 0;
end;

check;

shocks;
var epsilon_u = sigma^2;
end;

stoch simul(periods=2100);

Hi Tartaglia,

you have unbalanced brackets in the line:

x=x(+1)-(1/sigma)(i-pi(+1)-(rho+sigma(1+phi/(sigma+phi))*(1-rho)*a;

Since the right bracket is missing, Dynare does not allow you to end up the line by the symbol ‘;’.

Best,
Pavel

Oh yeah, that was it…, thank you so much!!
