Understanding the relationship between nominal and real variables, most notably inflation and cyclical output, is one of the fundamental questions of economics. Toward this understanding, we develop a model that integrates sticky prices and sticky informationa dual-stickiness model. We find that both rigidities are present in U.S. data. We also show that the dual-stickiness model's closest competitor is the hybrid New Keynesian model. For both models, current inflation depends in part on last… Expand
How well does sticky information explain inflation and output inertia
This paper compares two approaches that aim to explain the lagged and persistent behaviorof inflation and output after a variation in the interest rate. Two variants that produce inertiaare added toExpand
Optimal Monetary Policy under Sticky Prices and Sticky Information
A wrong model can lead to a wrong conclusion. The failure to capture inflation dynamics has made the standard New Keynesian framework of monetary policy analysis prone to such a critique. In thisExpand
The Dual Stickiness Model and Inflation Dynamics in Spain
We estimate a model that integrates sticky prices and sticky information using Spanish data following Dupor et. al (2008). The model yields three empircal facts: a-) the frequency of price changesExpand
On the role of dependence in sticky price and sticky information Phillips curve: Modelling and forecasting
Abstract Understanding the role of sticky price and sticky information for inflation dynamics is a key issue in economics. The literature has treated the two forms of stickiness as independent. ThisExpand
Relative importance of sticky prices and sticky information in price setting
The relative importance of price and information stickiness in price setting to model and explain inflation dynamics is investigated in this study. A structural model of inflation is developed andExpand
Sticky information vs. Backward-looking indexation: Inflation inertia in the U.S
This paper compares two approaches towards the empirical inertia of inflation and output. Two variants that produce persistence are added to a baseline DSGE model of sticky prices: 1) stickyExpand
Sticky Prices vs. Sticky Information - A Cross-Country Study of Inflation Dynamics
This paper empirically compares sticky-price and sticky-information Phillips curves considering inflation dynamics in six countries (US, UK, Germany, France, Canada, and Japan). We evaluate theExpand

How Robust Are Popular Models of Nominal Frictions?
This paper analyzes three popular models of nominal price and wage frictions to determine which best fits post-war U.S. data. We construct a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model andExpand
Bounded rationality in rules of price adjustment and the Phillips Curve
This paper presents a model of endogenous bias in rules of price adjustment that allows one to analyse the behaviour of inflation and output continuously throughout the entire spectrum ofExpand

Sticky Information and Sticky Prices
In the U.S. and Europe, prices change somewhere between every six months and once a year. Yet nominal macro shocks seem to have real effects lasting well beyond a year. "Sticky information" models,Expand
