Two types of robust policy are discussed. The first is due to uncertainty in the parameters or exogenous variables in the model. A method that is based on sensitivity analysis and reduces to a mean-variance optimization in the linear model case is presented. The second type of uncertainty is that due to the multiplicity of models purporting to represent the same economic system. A min-max algorithm is presented to solve this problem.
