Focusing on the compression of wage cuts, many empirical studies find a high degree of downward nominal wage rigidity (DNWR). However, the resulting macroeconomic effects seem to be surprisingly weak. This contradiction can be explained within an intertemporal framework in which DNWR not only prevents nominal wage cuts but also induces firms to compress(More)
50 non-premedicated ASA class I or II patients were allocated randomly into two groups and received either a variable infusion of propofol or midazolam for sedation during orthopaedic surgery with regional blockade. To achieve a well-sedated patient with eyes closed and able to follow commands, the dose requirements for propofol were 1.25 mg/kg +/- 0.5 as a(More)
Plenty of studies document the existence of downward nominal wage rigidity (DNWR). Elsby (2009) argues that the macroeconomic effects of DNWR may be weak, because DNWR leads to a compression of wage increases. Using micro-data from the US and UK, he finds evidence for a compression of wage increases when DNWR binds. Our analyses try to determine whether the(More)
The aim of the present study was to study the effect of combined therapy of teriparatide (PTH) or strontium ranelate (SR) with whole-body vibration (WBV) on bone healing and muscle properties in an osteopenic rat model. Seventy-two rats (3 months old) were bilaterally ovariectomized (Ovx), and 12 rats were left intact (Non-Ovx). After 8 weeks, bilateral(More)
