The Model
This section outlines the non-linear model.
1.1
Households
The representative household maximises its expected lifetime utility:
E0
∞
X
β t ζt U (Ct , LH,t , LN,t , LX,t )
t=0
where ζt is an intertemporal preference shock:
ln ζt = ρζ ln ζt−1 + uζt
(1)
The household’s utility function is given by:
h
i 1+ν
L
t
1+ω
1+ω
1+ω 1+ω
ξH LH,t + ξN LN,t + ξX LX,t
U (Ct , LH,t , LN,t , LX,t ) = ln (Ct − hCt−1 ) −
1+ν
where L
t is a shock to labour supply:
L
ln L
t = ρ ln t−1 + ut
L
(2)
Households maximise subject to the budget constraint:

and the capital accumulation equations:
Ih,t
JH,t
KH,t+1 = (1 − δ) KH,t + Vt 1 − Υ
Ih,t−1
In,t
KN,t+1 = (1 − δ) KN,t + Vt 1 − Υ

In,t−1
Ix,t
JX,t
KX,t+1 = (1 − δ) KX,t + Vt 1 − Υ

(4)
(5)
where:
Vt =
v
Ṽt
(1 + zI )t
ln Ṽt = ρV ln Ṽt−1 + uVt
(6)
(7)
Note that JN,t refers to investment that produces capital for use in the non-tradeable sector. It is distinct from IN,t which
refers to non-tradeable goods used to produce investment goods via the investment goods aggregator.
The interest rate that the household receives on foreign bonds follows the process:
St Bt∗
− b∗ + ψ̃b,t
RtF = Rt∗ exp −ψb
Pt Yt
2
(8)
where b∗ is the steady-state net foreign asset-to-GDP ratio, ψ˜b,t is a risk-premium shock that follows the process:
ψ̃b,t = ρψ ψ̃b,t + uψ,t
(9)
and Rt∗ follows the process
∗
ln Rt∗ = (1 − ρR∗ ) ln R∗ + ρR∗ ln Rt−1
+ uR∗ ,t
(10)
The household’s consumption bundle is a CES aggregate of traded and non-traded goods, while the traded goods is itself a
CES aggregate of home- and foreign-produced traded goods:

Production
Commodity Firms
Commodity firms produce using the Cobb-Douglas production function:
1−αX
αX
YX,t = At ZX,t KX,t
(Zt LH,t )
(15)
where ZX,t is a stationary sector-specific TFP shock:
ZX,t = (1 + zX )t Z̃X,t
ln Z̃X,t = ρX ln Z̃X,t−1 + uX,t
(16)
At is a stationary technology shock that is common across sectors:
ln (At ) = ρa ln (At−1 ) + uA,t
(17)
and Zt is a labour-augmenting technology shock that is common across sectors whose growth rate 1 + zt =
Zt
Zt−1
follows:
ln zt = (1 − ρz ) ln z + ρz ln zt−1 + uz,t
(18)
∗
follows
We assume that the foreign price of commodities PX,t
∗
PX,t
= κt Pt∗
(19)
where Pt∗ is the foreign price level and κt follows the process:
κt = exp (κ̃t )
1 + z∗
∗
1 + zX
t
(20)
κ̃t = (1 − ρκ )κ + ρκ κ̃t−1 + εκ,t
(21)
The law of one price holds and so the domestic price of commodities is:
∗
PX,t = St PX,t
(22)
and the firm takes this as given when making its production decisions.
1.2.2
Non-tradeable firms sell differentiated products, which they produce using the Cobb-Douglas production function:
1−αN (i)
αN
YN,t (i) = At ZN,t KN,t
(i) (Zt LN,t (i))
(23)
ZN,t is a stationary sector-specific TFP shock:
ZN,t = (1 + zN )t Z̃N,t
ln Z̃N,t = ρN ln Z̃N,t−1 + uN,t
4
(24)
and Zt is a labour-augmenting technology shock defined above.

Importing Firms
Importing firms purchase foreign good varieties at the price ςSt Pt∗ (i) and sell them in the domestic market at price PF,t (i).
The parameter ς represents a subsidy to imported firms, funded by lump-sum taxation. We set the subsidy equal to
ς = (θf − 1)/θf , thereby ensuring that markups in this sector are zero in equilibrium.

The Posterior Sampler
To simulate from the joint posterior of the structural parameters and the date breaks, p(ϑ, T|Y ), we use the MetropolisHastings algorithm following a strategy similar to Kulish et al. . As we have continuous and discrete parameters we
modify the standard setup for Bayesian estimation of DSGE models. We separate the parameters into two blocks: date
breaks and structural parameters. To be clear, though, the sampler delivers draws from the joint posterior of both sets of
parameters.
The first block of the sampler is for the date breaks, T. As is common in the literature on structural breaks (Bai and Perron
), we set the trimming parameter to 25 per cent of the sample size so that the minimum length of a segment has 20
observation. Within the feasible range we draw from a uniform proposal density and randomize which particular date break
in T to update. This approach is motivated by the randomized blocking scheme developed for DSGE models in Chib and
Ramamurthy .
The algorithm for drawing for the date breaks block is as follows: Initial values of the date breaks, T0 , and the structural
parameters, ϑ0 , are set. Then, for the j th iteration, we proceed as follows:
1. randomly sample which date break to update from a discrete uniform distribution with support ranging from one to
the total number of breaks, in our case two.
0
2. randomly sample the corresponding elements of the proposed date breaks, Tj , from a discrete uniform distribution
[Tmin , Tmax ] and set the remaining elements to their values in Tj−1
0
3. calculate the acceptance ratio αjT ≡
p(ϑj−1 ,Tj |Y)
p(ϑj−1 ,Tj−1 |Y)
0
4. accept the proposal with probability min{αjT , 1}, setting Tj = Tj , or Tj−1 otherwise.
The second block of the sampler is for the nϑ structural parameters.1 It follows a similar strategy to the date-breaks-block
described above - we randomize over the number and which parameters to possibly update at each iteration. The proposal
density is a multivariate Student’s t− distribution.2 Once again, for the j th iteration we proceed as follows:
1. randomly sample the number of parameters to update from a discrete uniform distribution [1, nϑ ]
2. randomly sample without replacement which parameters to update from a discrete uniform distribution [1, nϑ ]
0
3. construct the proposed ϑj by drawing the parameters to update from a multivariate Student’s t− distribution with 10
degrees of freedom and with location set at the corresponding elements of ϑj−1 , scale matrix based on the corresponding
elements of the negative inverse Hessian at the posterior mode multiplied by a tuning parameter ι = 0.15 .
0
4. calculate the acceptance ratio αjϑ ≡
p(ϑj ,Tj |Y)
p(θj−1 ,Tj |Y)
0
or set αjϑ = 0 if the proposed ϑj includes inadmissible values (e.g. a
proposed negative value for the standard deviation of a shock or autoregressive parameters above unity) preventing
0
calculation of p(ϑj , Tj |Y )
0
5. accept the proposal with probability min{αjϑ , 1}, setting ϑj = ϑj , or ϑj−1 otherwise.
We use this multi-block algorithm to construct a chain of 575,000 draws from the joint posterior, p(ϑ, T|Y ), throwing out
the first 25 per cent as burn-in. Trace plots show that the sampler mixes well.
