The model fits US post-war macroeconomic data well, and shows that financial shocks play a greater role in explaining the volatility of macroeconomic variables than marginal efficiency of investment (MEI) shocks.This paper estimates a New Keynesian DSGE model with an explicit financial intermediary sector.
