I am looking for practice questions on recursive macroeconomics that focus on the following:

  • Defining Competitive equilibriums (Arrow Debreu, Sequential Market, Recursive Competitive) for different situations and showing equivalence

  • Solving Bellman equations and Lagrangians for various social planner problems

  • Deriving Euler equations for the social planners problems.

I have been using Stokey and Lucas to study and would just like additional practice besides the exercises in Stokey and Lucas(1989).

You should have a look at this:

Exercises in Recursive Macroeconomic Theory Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh Pierre-Olivier Weill Lars Ljungqvist Thomas J. Sargent


I found UC Davis's Macro Prelims to be most helpful in this regard. Ljungqvist and Sargent is also pretty decent.
