The “rational expectations revolution” is now as old as the Keynesian and the smaller optimizing single-economy models of Rotemberg and Woodford () and McCallum and Nelson () also developed for policy research. Such rational expectations models are now regularly used at central banks, including How the Rational Expectations.

In economics, "rational expectations" are model-consistent expectations, in that agents inside the model are assumed to "know the model" and on average take the model's predictions as valid.

Rational expectations ensure internal consistency in models involving uncertainty. To obtain consistency within a model, the predictions of future values of economically relevant variables from the model.

the expectations of economic decisionmakers in dynamic models, and reconsid-ers familiar results in the theory of monetary and fiscal policy when one allows for departures from the hypothesis of rational expectations.

The various ap-proaches are all illustrated in the. Rational expectations are the best guess for the future. Rational expectations suggest that although people may be wrong some of the time, on average they will be correct. In particular, rational expectations assumes that people learn from past mistakes.

Rational expectations have implications for economic policy. David Glasner has a post criticizing the rational expectations modeling assumption in economics. What this means is that expectations can be rational only when everyone has identical expectations.

If people have divergent expectations, then the expectations of at least some people will necessarily be disappointed — the expectations of both people with differing expectations cannot be.

An equilibrium of a dynamic model can typically be described by a probability distribution over sequences of data.

The emergence of the theory of rational expectations is associated with the defending of the free market system as well as the development of a powerful state intervention critique. By assuming rational expectations about the economy’s state, even of a temporary kind involuntary unemployment due to demand deficiency is absolutely denied.

he Rational Expectations Model can be summarized through the use of four equations to define economic activity. The Aggregate Demand Equation: AD = (C + I + G + NX) = P t Y t R. M t V = P t Y t R.

Where M t V represents total expenditure as defined by the product of the money stock and its velocity (the number of times a unit of currency is used for subsequent transactions). rational expectations “revolution.” Rational expecta-tions models, however, generally contain an addi-tional element that has little to do with the formation of expectations: the assumption of equilibrium.
