A common set of mathematical tools underlies dynamic optimization, dynamic estimation, and filtering. In Recursive Models of Dynamic Linear Economies, Lars Peter Hansen and Thomas Sargent use these tools to create a class of econometrically tractable models of prices and quantities. They present examples from microeconomics, macroeconomics, and asset pricing. The models are cast in terms of a representative consumer. While Hansen and Sargent demonstrate the analytical benefits acquired when an analysis with a representative consumer is possible, they also characterize the restrictiveness of assumptions under which a representative household justifies a purely aggregative analysis.

Hansen and Sargent unite economic theory with a workable econometrics while going beyond and beneath demand and supply curves for dynamic economies. They construct and apply competitive equilibria for a class of linear-quadratic-Gaussian dynamic economies with complete markets. Their book, based on the 2012 Gorman lectures, stresses heterogeneity, aggregation, and how a common structure unites what superficially appear to be diverse applications. An appendix describes MATLAB programs that apply to the book's calculations.

Endorsements:

"This is the ideal book for those who want to study, understand, and work with linear-quadratic dynamic economies. Providing a thorough, authoritative, yet accessible treatment, it contains a superb analysis of the connections between various linear-quadratic dynamic programming problems, the general equilibrium properties of these economies, the type of aggregation applicable to them, and the time-series implications for quantities and prices. A great book by two giants of the field."--Fernando Alvarez, University of Chicago

"In this tour-de-force of modern macroeconomics, Hansen and Sargent have written the definitive text on linear-quadratic economies that illustrate the connection between preferences and technology and the appropriate time-series representation. This gem of a book not only provides a thorough review of mathematical methods and related computational issues, but also includes cutting-edge economic models. It will be the required reference for anybody who works in modern dynamic macroeconomic problems."--Rodolfo E. Manuelli, Washington University in St. Louis

"Modern macroeconomics relies on dynamic equilibrium modeling and the statistical analysis of time-series data. This superb book teaches both techniques hands-on. It guides readers towards mastering a library of computer programs that work for many practical problems, a library that readers will then build on in their own macroeconomic research."--Martin Schneider, Stanford University

"It is nearly impossible to think of a better set of coauthors for this subject. I read their superior book with great pleasure and learned much from it."--Jesus Fernandez-Villaverde, University of Pennsylvania
