/*
* This file replicates the estimation of the cash in advance model (termed M1
* in the paper) described in Frank Schorfheide (2000): "Loss function-based
* evaluation of DSGE models", Journal of Applied Econometrics, 15(6), 645-670.
*
* The data are in file "fsdat_simul.m", and have been artificially generated.
* They are therefore different from the original dataset used by Schorfheide.
*
* The prior distribution follows the one originally specified in Schorfheide's
* paper, except for parameter rho. In the paper, the elicited beta prior for rho
* implies an asymptote and corresponding prior mode at 0. It is generally
* recommended to avoid this extreme type of prior. Some optimizers, for instance
* mode_compute=12 (Mathworks' particleswarm algorithm) may find a posterior mode
* with rho equal to zero. We lowered the value of the prior standard deviation
* (changing .223 to .100) to remove the asymptote.
*
* The equations are taken from J. Nason and T. Cogley (1994): "Testing the
* implications of long-run neutrality for monetary business cycle models",
* Journal of Applied Econometrics, 9, S37-S70.
* Note that there is an initial minus sign missing in equation (A1), p. S63.
*
* This implementation was originally written by Michel Juillard. Please note that the
* following copyright notice only applies to this Dynare implementation of the
* model.
