Notes
  • This paper deals with the estimation of the behavioral and welfare effects of counterfactual policy interventions in dynamic structural models where all the primitive functions are nonparametrically specified (i.e., preferences, technology, transition rules, and distribution of unobserved variables). It proves the nonparametric identification of agents' decision rules, before and after the policy intervention, and of the change in agents' welfare. Based on these results we propose a nonparametric procedure to estimate the behavioral and welfare effects of a general class of counterfactual policy interventions. The nonparametric estimator can be used to construct a test of the validity of a particular parametric specification. We apply this method to evaluate hypothetical reforms in the rules of a public pension system using a model of retirement behavior and a sample of workers in Sweden.

  • This paper presents a method to estimate the effects of a counterfactual policy intervention in the context of dynamic structural models where all the structural functions (i.e., preferences, technology, transition probabilities, and the distribution of unobservable variables) are nonparametrically specified. We show that agents' behavior, before and after the policy intervention, and the change in agents' utility are nonparametrically identified. Based on this result we propose a nonparametric procedure to estimate the behavioral and welfare effects of a general class of counterfactual policy interventions. We apply this method to evaluate hypothetical reforms in the rules of a public pension system using a model of retirement behavior and a sample of blue-collar workers in Sweden
