Guest Post At RWER On DSGE Models

Thanks to Merijn Knibbe, I have the article "DSGE macro models criticism, a round up. Part 5, the intertemporal government budget constraint" posted on the Real-World Economics Review Blog. It gives an overview about my complaints about the mathematical framework for fiscal policy within DSGE macro models. (A round up of my articles here.)

I have not written about "mathiness" (Tom Hickey compiled a list of articles here), but mangling the constraints on fiscal policy seems to qualify.

The comment section here is largely dead. My Substack or Twitter are better places to have a conversation.

Given that this is largely a backup way to reach me, I am going to reject posts that annoy me. Please post lengthy essays elsewhere.
