  • Rational Expectations Hypothesis Essay

    2.1 The Rational Expectations Hypothesis The rational expectations hypothesis is the hypothesis that, when forming expectations about any variable, people will make optimal use of the available information. This information includes the actual value of certain variables and, more widely, the nature or structure of the world in which people are operating. Let the value a variable ‘y’ takes in period t depend upon, or be a function f (.) of, the value of other variables, x1, x2 and x3 have taken in some previous periods. But let y also be influenced by a random event, u. So the true nature of the world is the following: yt = f (x1t-1----- x1t-n, x2t-1----- x2t-n, x3t-1----- x3t-n) + ut ------------------------------------------ ( 2.1) Here the state of the world is represented by the actual value of all the variables and the nature of the f(.) function. Assuming the nature of the function and values of all the variables in period‘t-1’then the rational forecast of yt will be: Eyt/It-1 = f (x1t-1----- x1t-n, x2t-1----- x2t-n, x3t-1----- x3t-n) + Eut/It-1--------------------------- (2.2) Where Eyt/It-1 means the expectation of yt formed on the basis of information (I) available in period t-1.The distribution of u is another element of the ‘state of the world’ which people are assumed to know. What they do not know is the actual value ‘u’ will take in period t. Usually this distribution is assumed to be normal around zero so that u has a mean of…
