Steady state

As an MBS pool ages, or four to six months after component mortgages have passed at least once the threshold for refinancing, the prepayment speed tends to stabilize within a fairly steady range.

Steady State

1. Describing an economy that is neither growing nor shrinking. While this is not technically a recession, a steady state economy is not generally considered desirable.

2. See: equilibrium.

Due to the immaterial change in performance, Fitch has maintained its MPR steady state of 15%.
However, the steady states have stability properties associated with them in a fully dynamic analysis, and the argument is that the targeted steady state is the stable one, while the unintended, low nominal interest rate steady state is unstable.
Exploring sufficiency conditions regarding preferences, technologies and policy parameters for dynamic stability of steady states (Gandolfo 1997, p.
The model above taught us that the Fisher equation together with a Taylor rule that responds strongly to inflation can lead to multiple steady states and other equilibria because of the lower bound on nominal interest rates.
Thus, when comparing the low real money balances' steady states and dynamic equilibria converging to them, paying interest will be welfare improving.
In this paper we take advantage of the fact that experimental methods allow the underlying parameters of the economy to be observed and manipulated, and we construct and study the behavior of dynamic laboratory macroeconomies that are known to have multiple, locally stable, Pareto-rankable stationary steady states.
In its steady states of negentropy, life emerges and dissipates on multiple scales of magnitude exhibiting simultaneously wholeness and complexity.
Naturally, these linear forecast functions differ greatly between the different types of steady states.
To arrive at this estimate, the geometric mean of lead found along the eight streets included in the steady-state surveys was multiplied by the number of steady states reached per year, and then multiplied by the number of kilometers of major streets.
While quantitative outcomes are only exact for small policy variations, comparisons based on steady states indicate good agreement for moderate changes.
Fitch receives historical performance data and monthly servicing reports from WFNNB and utilizes the information to derive steady states for key performance metrics.
To measure the rate of technological progress, we have calculated the growth rate of the Productivity Index in the data; that is, we assume that countries are indeed at their steady states, and thus, output per worker and capital per worker grow at the same rate.
