Christopher D. Carroll

NBER Technical Working Paper No. 309
Issued in June 2005
NBER Program(s):Technical Working Papers

This paper introduces a method for solving numerical dynamic stochastic optimization problems that avoids rootfinding operations. The idea is applicable to many microeconomic and macroeconomic problems, including life cycle, buffer-stock, and stochastic growth problems. Software is provided.
