This paper solves the multi-country RBC model described in den Haan et al. (this issue) and Juillard and Villemot (this issue), using a perturbation method. We explain how to apply first- and second-order versions of the gensys2.m algorithm to this model. The perturbation method is computationally cheap and can easily be applied to large models with possibly hundreds of state variables.
