This paper illustrates how to use instrumental variables procedures to estimate the parameters of a linear rational expectations model. These procedures are appropriate when disturbances are serially correlated and the instrumental variables are not exogenous. We compare our procedures to some alternative estimators that estimate free parameters from restrictions implied by the Euler equations. The procedures are applicable to a variety of linear rational expectations models, several examples of which we cite.
