The use of expectations in economic theory is not new. Many earlier economists, including A. Hicks, assigned a central role in the determination of the business cycle to people's expectations about the future. Keynes referred to this as "waves of optimism and pessimism" that helped determine the level of economic activity. But proponents of the rational expectations theory are more thorough in their analysis of—and assign a more important role to—expectations. The influences between expectations and outcomes flow both ways. In forming their expectations, people try to forecast what will actually occur.

In economics , " rational expectations " are model-consistent expectations , in that agents inside the model are assumed to "know the model" and on average take the model's predictions as valid. To obtain consistency within a model, the predictions of future values of economically relevant variables from the model are assumed to be the same as that of the decision-makers in the model, given their information set, the nature of the random processes involved, and model structure. The rational expectations assumption is used especially in many contemporary macroeconomic models. Since most macroeconomic models today study decisions under uncertainty and over many periods, the expectations of individuals, firms, and government institutions about future economic conditions are an essential part of the model. To assume rational expectations is to assume that agents ' expectations may be wrong, but are correct on average over time. In other words, although the future is not fully predictable, agents' expectations are assumed not to be systematically biased and collectively use all relevant information in forming expectations of economic variables.
This collection of essays uses the lens of rational expectations theory to examine how governments anticipate and plan for inflation, and provides insight into the pioneering research for which Thomas Sargent was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics. Rational expectations theory is based on the simple premise that people will use all the information available to them in making economic decisions, yet applying the theory to macroeconomics and econometrics is technically demanding. Here, Sargent engages with practical problems in economics in a less formal, noneconometric way, demonstrating how rational expectations can satisfactorily interpret a range of historical and contemporary events. He focuses on periods of actual or threatened depreciation in the value of a nation's currency.
Sargent and Neil Wallace based upon the theory of rational expectations , which posits that monetary policy cannot systematically manage the levels of output and employment in the economy. Prior to the work of Sargent and Wallace, macroeconomic models were largely based on the adaptive expectations assumption. Many economists found this unsatisfactory since it assumes that agents may repeatedly make systematic errors and can only revise their expectations in a backward-looking way. Under adaptive expectations, agents do not revise their expectations even if the government announces a policy that involves increasing money supply beyond its expected growth level.

Он будет оставаться в таком состоянии, пока она не вернется и вновь не введет пароль. Затем Сьюзан сунула ноги в туфли и последовала за коммандером. - Какого черта ему здесь надо? - спросил Стратмор, как только они с Сьюзан оказались за дверью Третьего узла.
Внешний щит, исчезающий на наших глазах, - открытый главный компьютер. Этот щит практически взломан. В течение часа то же самое случится с остальными пятью.
Но… Послышался щелчок положенной на рычаг трубки. Беккер беззвучно выругался и повесил трубку. Третья попытка провалилась.
Еще здесь был вещевой мешок, который полиция взяла в отеле, где остановился этот человек. Беккер получил четкие инструкции: ни к чему не прикасаться, ничего не читать. Просто все привезти.
