New version of "Interest Rates Under Falling Stars"

Glenn Rudebusch and I finished a new version of our paper “Interest Rates Under Falling Stars” which includes a lot of new material. Most importantly, we developed a new model for the yield curve that allows for shifting long-run trends and provides a new, fully Bayesian estimate of the equilibrium nominal interest rate $i^\ast$.
