IrisT Tutorial: Simple SPBC Model

Build a simple sticky-price business-cycle model (SPBC), calibrate the model and investigate its properties. Run a number of basic and more advanced experiments to illustrate typical tasks in practical model development and operation. The experiments include, for instance, steady-state comparative statics, dynamic simulations, estimation, filtering of historical data, and forecasting scenarios.
