The rank condition ISN'T verified!


I tried to replicate Thomas Carlos’s paper as a first exercice with linear model (search frictions, real rigidities and Inflation Dynamics JMCB2011 ) . when i run my codes dynare posts the following message error. Can someone please tell me what i should do in this case?

equation are already log-linearised in the paper. I Attached the file. Thanks a lot!

There are 4 eigenvalue(s) larger than 1 in modulus
for 5 forward-looking variable(s)

The rank condition ISN’T verified!

Your law of motion for employment violates Dynare’s timing convention. You need to enter it as

Otherwise, if you have the n_hat(+1) at the left-hand side, you are not setting employment in period t+1 but its expectation. Basically, employment is a predetermined state. You also need to check the other equations whether the timing is correct.
