Nominal Rigidities, News-Driven Business Cycles, and Monetary Policy

Keiichiro Kobayashi and Kengo Nutahara

The B.E. Journal of Macroeconomics, 2010, vol. 10, issue 1, 1-26

Abstract: A news-driven business cycle is a positive comovement in consumption, labor, investment, and output caused by positive news about the future. Standard real business cycle models do not generate it. In this paper, we find that a used market friction i.e., sticky prices can be a source of news-driven business cycles from news about future technology growth, technology level, and expansionary monetary policy shocks. The key mechanism is the countercyclical movements of markups through nominal rigidities.
