Second order cannot compute

First order looks ok (I think). When I set order to 2, I get the following. Can someone check the attached file and let me know how to go about it? I in the first order I also get LAMBDAR and lambda greater than 5.

@jpfeifer Any clue?

The steady state helper is missing.

Hi @jpfeifer Sorry about that.

script_v13LNR_steadystate_helper.m (294 Bytes)
script_v13WR_steadystate_helper.m (253 Bytes)

By setting

check(qz_zero_threshold= 1e-20);

you force the model to work at first order despite a fundamental singularity. But the problem reappears at order=2. You need to find out what is going on. For one, I find the zero interest rates strange.

Thanks. I will revisit again.
