Expectation formation plays a principal role in economic systems. We examine and revise the standard rational expectations (RE) model, generally taken as the best paradigm for expectations modelling, and suggest a new method to model rational expectations. Conventional conditions that assert the stability and uniqueness of popular solution methods are shown to be insufficient. The agent-based new modelling approach suggested in this paper will be shown to lead to uniquely stable solutions.
