When do credit frictions matter for business cycles?

Felipe Schwartzman

Economic Quarterly, 2012, issue 3Q, 209-230

Abstract: Since the Great Recession there has been renewed interest in introducing credit frictions in business cycle models. However, in order for credit frictions to be quantitatively meaningful and qualitatively realistic in business cycles, it is necessary to depart from conventional assumptions about production technology or preferences and/or add additional frictions. This article reviews some of those departures and additions.
