The therapy to shock therapy: optimal dynamical policies for transition economies

Challet, Damien ; Solomon, Sorin ; Yaari, Gur

We show that a simple model reproduces very closely the evolution of the GDP in constant dollars of many countries during the times of recession and recovery. A theoretical analysis illustrates how an optimal dynamical policy reduces both recession duration and severity, and increases the value of GDP at all times. We propose a criterion to distinguish a posteriori a dynamical policy from a... Plus

    Summary
    We show that a simple model reproduces very closely the evolution of the GDP in constant dollars of many countries during the times of recession and recovery. A theoretical analysis illustrates how an optimal dynamical policy reduces both recession duration and severity, and increases the value of GDP at all times. We propose a criterion to distinguish a posteriori a dynamical policy from a static one.
