Andrade et al. analyze the data from a large panel of firms and show how sector-specific shocks erroneously influence firms’ outlooks about the aggregate economy. This paper is part of a broader research agenda that has extensively documented the existence of information rigidities using data from large-scale surveys of households and firms. This comment discusses the implications of this research agenda for central banking in light of a complementary empirical method, namely laboratory experiments, and their use in informing macroeconomic policies.
