49). 11 12 Money matters — essays in honour of Alan Walters of analysis were worked out independently of previous writings, with knowledge of Muth’s paper perhaps arriving rather late in the publication process. In the 30-plus years since 1971 a lot of activity has taken place in the area of RE money/macro analysis, to put it mildly. Consequently, I have no intention of trying to survey the many developments that have taken place. But I would like to take up some particular issues concerning solution concepts and the problem of “indeterminacy,” or multiple solutions, in RE models.

For this case, consider the conditional expectation, Et¡1 yt : Et¡1 yt = (1 ¡ ¯ 0 )¡1 [® + ¯ 1 Et¡1 yt+1 + ±yt¡1 + ½ut¡1 ] (36) Here it is clear that, for given values of Et¡1 yt+1 , yt¡1 , and ut¡1 , Et¡1 yt will pass through an in…nite discontinuity at ¯ 0 = 1. Consequently, for basically the same reason as before, ¯ 0 < 1 is necessary for the model to be well formulated. 16 An application of these criteria to the questionable example of E&H (1992), featured above in Section 5, is immediate. That example’s result, of a MSV solution that is not E-stable, requires ° = h > 1.

Finally, Section 8 provides a brief summary and conclusion. 2 Consistent and Rational Expectations Walters (1971) analyzed price level behavior in a model that is fairly similar to the standard workhorse for monetary RE analysis, which includes the Cagan (1956) money demand function and a policy process represented in terms of money supply. Walters’s money-demand equation is written as pt = ®mt¡1 + ¯(pet ¡ pt¡1 ) + "t (1) with ® > 0 and 0 < ¯ < 1. Here the dating of variables di¤ers from the version that has become standard and, for some reason, pt and mt represent the price level and the money stock, rather than their logarithms.
