Abstract: A chief goal of the Pigou cycle literature is to generate a boom in response to news of a future increase in productivity, and a bust if this improvement does not in fact take place. We nd that monetary policy can generate Pigou cycles in a two sector model with durables and non-durables, and nominal price rigidities { even when the Ramsey-optimal policy displays no such cycles. Estimated interest rate rules are a good t to data simulated under the Ramsey policy, implying that policymakers could come close to replicating the Ramsey-optimal policy.
