A note on Wiener-Kolmogorov prediction formulas for rational expectations models

Lars Peter Hansen, Thomas J. Sargent

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    A prediction formula for geometrically declining sums of future forcing variables is derived for models in which the forcing variables are generated by a vector autoregressive-moving average process. This formula is useful in deducing and characterizing cross-equation restrictions implied by linear rational expectations models.
