Replication data for: Welfare Cost of Business Cycles with Idiosyncratic Consumption Risk and a Preference for Robustness

Martin Ellison & Thomas J. Sargent
The welfare cost of random consumption fluctuations is known from De Santis (2007) to be increasing in the level of uninsured idiosyncratic consumption risk. It is known from Barillas, Hansen, and Sargent (2009) to increase if agents care about robustness to model misspecification. We calculate the cost of business cycles in an economy where agents face idiosyncratic consumption risk and fear model misspecification, finding that idiosyncratic risk has a greater impact on the cost of...
