Abstract

We describe how to use the composite likelihood to ameliorate estimation, computational, and inferential problems in dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models. We present a number of situations where the methodology has the potential to resolve well-known problems and formally justifies existing practices. In each case we consider, we provide an example to illustrate how the approach works and its properties in practice.
