Hi.

When I run a simple RBC model,

mineRBC.mod (544 Bytes)

the moments of the model are presented as follows:

For example the standard deviation of the consumption variable is equal to: 0.7580

But the standard deviation of real data for this variable is 0.04

I think the standard deviation obtained in the model is very large

This is also the case for other variables.

Does this indicate that the model is incorrect or is there a problem with my calculations for the data? I first run the Hodrick Prescott filter and then calculate the standard deviation(on the cycle).
