That is because in period t - 1 an innovation in the demand and supply shock occurs (equal to E t _i and n t _ i , respectively) that the monetary policy maker will react to.

12) allows for a very intuitive interpretation. The shadow return on the possession and use of physical capital is the sum of the shadow capital gain (4(t)) and the marginal product of capital [FK(N(t), K(t))], expressed in terms of the shadow price (to make it a rate of return). This shadow rate of return must equal the market rate of return on other financial assets (that are perfect substitutes for shares) plus the rate of physical deterioration of the capital stock. The depreciation costs must be counted as a cost item because capital evaporates over time, regardless of whether the firm uses the capital for production or not.

An economy with violent (mild) fluctuations has a high (low) asymptotic variance. Suppose that the path for output is described by the following equation: (a) Yt AYt-1 Xt + Et, I A 11 , where y t is output, xt is some (vector of) deterministic exogenous variable(s), and Et is a white noise stochastic error term with mean zero and variance aE2 . How would a Martian judge the degree of fluctuations in output, not knowing any realizations of output and the error term, but in full knowledge of equation (a) and the stochastic process of the error terms.
