On implications of micro price data for macro models - comments
Virgiliu Midrigan ()
Conference Series ; [Proceedings], 2008, vol. 53
The author discusses: the challenges the wealth of micro-data has posed to macroeconomists and some of the progress made to address these; the fact that an important number of price changes in the data are temporary discounts (sales); and the complicated mapping from the frequency of price adjustment to the degree of monetary non-neutrality in economies that explicitly model price stickiness as arising from menu costs.
