The crucial consideration, therefore, in considering the stability/instability of the fixed point is to consider the ratio d/b. If this is less than unity in absolute terms, then the system is oscillatory but convergent.
If the previous price turned out to be higher than the expected price, so that pe(tϪ1) Ϫp(tϪ1) Ͼ0, then the previous expected price is lowered by a fraction of this difference. 11) 36 An Introduction to Economic Dynamics Of particular note is the situation where ϭ1. 8). This can be thought of then as a special case of the present model. Return to our example but now with this new specification for the formation of expectations. 12) 0 Յ Յ1 Although a little more involved, it is still a straightforward linear model.
4 Different expectations The supply curve had the quantity supplied dependent on the expected price. In our earlier discussion we made the simplifying assumption that the expected price in period t was equal to the price in the previous period. This is only one possible specification of the formation of expectations. Another possibility is to take account of the trend in prices and adjust the previous expectation accordingly. In other words, if the previous expectation was too low, then raise the present expectation by some margin of the error.
