Abstract
  • This paper derives a variance bounds test for a broad class of linear rational expectations models. According to this test if observed data accords with the model, then a weighted sum of autocovariances of the covariance-stationary components of the endogenous state variables should be nonnegative. The new test reinterprets its forefather—West's [1986] variance bounds test— and extends its applicability by not requiring exogenous state variables in order to be tested. The possibility of the test's application to nonlinear models is also discussed.
