We propose a method to estimate time invariant cyclical dynamic stochastic gen eral equilibrium models using the information provided by a variety of filters. We treat data filtered with alternative procedures as contaminated proxies of the relevant model-based quantities and estimate structural and nonstructural parameters jointly using a signal extraction approach. We employ simulated data to illustrate the properties of the procedure and compare our conclusions with those obtained when just one filter is used. We revisit the role of money in the transmission of monetary business cycles.
