Staggered Price and Trend Inflation:Some Nuisances

Guido Ascari ()

No 10, Royal Economic Society Annual Conference 2002 from Royal Economic Society

Abstract: Most of the papers in the sticky-price literature are based on a log-linearisation around the zero inflation steady state, a simplifying but counterfactual assumption. This paper shows that when trend inflation is considered, both\ the long-run and the short run properties of time dependent staggered price models change dramatically. It follows that the results obtained by models log-linearised around a zero inflation steady state might be misleading.
