Abstract

Highlights ► We study the problem of a central bank that must select the true model across competing alternatives. ► Central banks should not deviate from the full-information optimal policy to speed up learning. ► Private sector’s learning does not affect the speed of selection of the true model. ► Selection of the true model is hampered in an economy with volatile demand shocks.
