Abstract

In this paper we develop a set of innovative forward-shooting algorithms that solve for the global nonlinear saddle path in models with 1-3 jump variables. Exploiting the fact that the algorithms are mechanical and model-free, we have placed canned, fully-automated programs in the public domain. The programs do not require any substantive human input. The user's only responsibility is to type in the equations of the model correctly.

Keywords: forward shooting, automated programs, global saddle path
