Hi everybody. I am having a hard time replicating the paper “UNEMPLOYMENT AND BUSINESS CYCLES”, by Christiano, Eichenbaum and Trabandt (2016) - Econometrica.
Apparently, the files available in his website (available here estimate the models using impulse response matching. Thus, there is a “data.m” file witch pass-on some random data to avoid Dynare getting stuck. I keep getting an error saying that this “data.m” file doesn’t exists in my current folder.
When loading the file
load('resultsAltOffer.mat'), I got this:
Warning: Class 'dates' is an unknown object class or does not have a valid 'loadobj' method. Element(s) of this class in array 'options_' have been converted to structures.
Which may or may not explain my error.
Also, when trying to run the other files, I got always:
`Error using cet_steadystate
Too many input arguments.
Error in evaluate_steady_state_file (line 49)
[ys,params1,check] = h_steadystate(ys_init, exo_ss,M,options);
Error in evaluate_steady_state (line 210)
[ys,params,info] = evaluate_steady_state_file(ys_init,exo_ss,M, options,steadystate_check_flag);
Error in resid (line 66)
Error in cet.driver (line 1103)
Error in dynare (line 293)
evalin(‘base’,[fname ‘.driver’]) ;`
I really need to replicate this results to get my research going. The files can be found in Mathias Trabandt’s webpage in the hyperlink above (the CETcode). The folder is too big to attach here.
